so... I've got about 40,000 words of story...

i had it at 20,00, almost exactly, and then i wrote another scene, even though it finished quite satisfactoraily. and then i wrote another scene. and another one. which eventually ended with me writing another 20,000 words, and it being 40,000 words long.

but here's the thing...

i'm not entirely sure the second half is as good as the first half.

my beta thinks i should post it, but i don't know.

anyone got an opinion?

There is no maximum word count, if you're worried about that; last year my big bang was forty-two thou. If your beta thinks that it's a strong story at that length and that all the scenes contribute to the plot, then you should be good to go.

In my opinion, if the whole thing fits together, and you're happy with it, post it all.

I am awed by your word count. I think if the whole thing fits together you should post it as one fic.
