I’ve been thinking about word count. A brief trawl online brings up numerous opines on acceptable novel lengths, many of which make sense. I also like to think that the narrative arc will propel you up, out and gently bring you down to a natural halt, that is, when the tale is told. I think about books I have loved, ranging from less than 200 pages long, to more than 600. Who can put a quantity on such things? It’s certainly not for me to say. But, if it’s numbers you’re after, check out this blog post. It’s a feast of words counted.
