I have read so many lists, articles, and watched YouTube videos trying to determine an appropriate word count for lit fic. I went into my novel with a desire for it to be as long/short as it needs to be. I am, if anything, an under-writer. My first draft ended just over 30k. My revisions and developments increased my word count to 45k. Here i am happy with the story, the pacing, character development and few sub plots. I feel that adding to this will feel just like what it would be, filler. And I hate filler reading or otherwise. But after all my research I'm concerned that it is just too short and agents/publishers will reject it based on length alone? Is this a legitimate fear or have i been procrastinating on the internet too long?
