Thank you so much. That is a lot of great information. I am starting to see why this forum is so popular. I looked at my kid's books they like reading and I assumed that was the standard word count for the age group. I would love to write 50-60 thousand words a book. I feel like I am holding back when I confine my work into 30 thousand or fewer words. I will work on posting to reach 50 posts. I would like to let others read my work and I would like to read others work as well.

I can't thank you enough for your wonderful advice Cyia.
