how to classify your story?
how to pick if the book should be a short story, novel, book, and all the rest i am forgetting that i know there are. How do you decide witch it should be? I have read short stories that should have been books i wanted more information more story but then i read books that should have been less to much unimportant things just to fill the pages so how do you know what your idea falls under?

A good novel has different pacing than a good short story.
And it really doesn't matter, as I've read good novels that never made it a hundred pages.
You don't need to plan everything. Sometimes the story lets you know when it's done, sometimes that is the editor's job.
