Buckling Down

I haven't posted anything in awhile, what with me having nothing post-worthy, haven't done much writing either...well untill today that is.
I've been alternating between writing four novels and revising one (well not so much writing as wasting time staring at a blank page), but I've been doing some thinking and I think I may try to devote the majority of my writing time (which is limited now, with all the procrastination and lack of motivation) on Serpenttongue and Wanted, as they're the two I feel the strongest about completing with possibility of submitting to agents. The other two will take some definite work.
I surprised myself, it was slow work (somewhere around five hours) but I managed 1,800 words of Serpenttongue today, which is saying something for me, as I just finished spending weeks not writing a word. I'm now to 44 single spaced pages and possibly a chapter or two away from what I consider to be the middle (or close to the middle) of the novel.
I am a little worried though, 25,000 words is pretty far away from being novel length...I can't help but wonder if I have enough ideas to make it to novel length.
