    Just keep writing. If a story in and of itself and without much provocation won't break 20 or so pages, it's unlikely it should be any longer. Trying to push a story outside of what it seems to fill will likely end in a watered down mess.
    You may simply find that you don't have a novel in you, if that's the case don't worry about it. Write short stories. Novels aren't the end all of fiction, they're just one form of it.
