Word count is a tricky thing when writing a novel. Most publishers have rules that govern word count. Always check with the publisher you plan to pitch your novel to or at least check their website for guides or notes on word count. Make sure your word count fits with the genre you are writing for instead of just hoping you’ll get lucky. When in doubt, see above, do your homework and ask questions or check websites. Read more ›
