I’ve previously posted about the varying word count recommendations that I have come across in my research. A few days ago, I stumbled onto Andrew Winkel’s website and he had a link that got me excited ( it’s possible I’ll be the only one).
Are you curious how many words are in your favorite book? I certainly am and I thought this would be a fairly simple thing to find; but, after searching Barnes and Noble, Amazon, and several other sites, I was surprised that the word count was not listed anywhere.
AR Book Find, however, provides the word count. I’d rather research the books that I love and respect and consider their length than take advice from unverified sources. In the big picture, word count, isn’t the final destination; but, I do think it’s a good bench mark in determining whether or not your story is fully developed. See below.
