How to Write Long Books

Question:

How do you write such long books? I’m
trying to write a book but its so hard! I really
love your books. I have a few different authors that I
love but I already finished all of their books! The only
books that I take out from the library are from you or
Erin Hunter b/c I didn’t finish your books. If you have a
 trick of how to make a long book please tell me!

You’re really asking the wrong question, I’m afraid.  Long or short doesn’t matter; it’s whether the book is any good.  Is it interesting?  Does it have a plot that grabs you?  Is there conflict?  Are the characters engaging?  Is the dialogue realistic?  Concentrate on writing the very best story or book that you can.   Length is SO unimportant.
