Here are some of the steps I have taken and am still taking on the road to becoming a published novelist.

Time to Panic
My goal was to fit 7,000 to 8,000 words per chapter, but so far, the first two chapters are about 9,000 words (combined). I'm going to have to devise another plot twist to either fit some more scenes into my planned chapters, or to add new chapters while consolidating the smaller ones.
At my current rate, I will run out of words at 40,000 - 45,000 and fall short of the 50,000 minimum.
