How long is a novel, exactly? I have a story, which I'm not sure should be counted as a novel, or short story. It's only about 50 pages, with almost 17,000 words.

That's be closer to a novella, which often go in the novel subforums. :)

Novellas go from about 15k/20k to 49k, while novels are over 50k. (k= 1,000)

Hello!

I need help! I've just posted my first novel called Graduation and the first chapter - 'Prologue' as well and I've gone through all the steps to publish it. However, when I go and see the novel on the novels page, it says that it's been authored by some other writer and not by me.

Though It still says that I wrote the chapter even though the novel comes under 'WrittenInStone'. I don't know what to do about this. Here's what it looks like - novel.php?id=1634 And I also don't know how this happened - novel.php?id=2046

I'll be most appreciative for help! >.<

How do I create a novel on the new YWS? I have two chapters of Doctor Who fanfiction, The Laws of Time Chapters 1 and 2 (which you should all go read by the way). I went to the green "read/write" tab and clicked the "Fanfiction Novels" link and clicked the blue "post new topic" button on the side of the page and submitted my work and it appears in the forum, but I want to put the two chapters together and when I submitted I didn't get the "make a novel" option.

Ah, thank you Rosey! That makes me feel better about my inability to create cool things! Now that I know that it is, at the present time, quite impossible, I will cease my tireless escapades into the process. :D
