A Novel Or a Novella?

One of the blogs I regularly read has inspired me to write fiction. (yeah, yeah yeah leftist, outside of my satire, poetry and UNS stories I don't write fiction here)

It is turning out to be a Tom Clancy-ish at least in terms of the story, in fact the story will probably reflect one of his books very closely but it would be a mirror image of it. Tom Clancy (TC) IS not the inspiration for this story and I will not be able to get real techno-detailed the way TC does.

I cranked out nearly 1,800 words of it today. I don't know how this rates. Unfortunately, I don't know if I can keep cranking out 1800 words/day (plus probably about another 500 or so here) with all of the other things going on in my life. I will try!
