Not Long Enough Books

So I just finished writing a book, which is a prequel to the book I wrote for NaNoWriMo last November. Decided one day I wanted to write it, so started it. Problem is, it's not long enough to qualify as a book, fitting in novella range still. Ended up at ~38K words, when to be the same length as the other one I need to hit ~52K words. So I still have some work to go.

But it shouldn't be too hard to pull off. There's three acts to this book, and I kind of skimmed through the second act because I wasn't quite sure where I was going with it and wanted to move on to the third act. Now with how I finished it I know a good way to continue with the second act, so can go back and flesh that one out some more, and from there I can evenly add more to fill out the rest. Hitting 52K final goal is doable easily enough.

Looks like I started writing it on April 6th, so a month and a week to get to this point. Not NaNoWriMo rate that's for sure, but I was a lot busier this last month than I was in NaNoWriMo so I'm still happy with the result. Once I finish it up I'll post it in draft form for a little while on places for people to read, then work on cleaning it up for publish along with the other book.
