1st draft, half done

I reached 30,000 words today, about 115 pages double-spaced. Again, the story is progressing so quickly that I'm beginning to worry about it wrapping up too soon. I may have to go back and add a few chapters or flesh out the ones I have, or I may not end up with enough words to call it a novel.

This is a new problem for me. In my first novel, I battled constantly against long-windedness, had to cut ruthlessly to get it down to its present size, which is still considered too long for a novel by about 20,000 words.

Does this mean that I've learned a lot about writing since then, or does it mean that my story just isn't developed enough? Time will tell.
