Ever wondered how many wordies make a novella or novel?
I've been searching every web page that has a list. let me tell you, it got confusing. Finally I took all the amounts and found a median for each type of book. I found that Writer' Digest and How-To-Write-a-Book had the most average of all the ones I read.
Here's the jest of it (averages):Pic Books : 350-600 wordies
Tweens: 20,000-55,000 wordies
Chapter Books: 5000-10,000
Short Stories: under 75000
Epic Novel/World Building: 90,000-110,000
Western Average: 50,000-80,000
Writer's Digest broke it down a bit further.Adult Novel:
70,000-79,000 might be too short
90,000-99,000 Usually safe
100,000-109,000 Might be too long
110,000 & over Too long
100,000-115,000 World building
I hope this gives you some idea as to the wordie counts you set.
