How Many Words?

May 8, 2017


New writers may wonder how many words, on average, should be in a work. It depends on what your writing is geared to. Are you creating a short story, aiming for a book, or something in between?


I’ve come across a wonderful e-zine where I found information on this topic and much more. It's Fiction Factor created by Lee Masterson. Lee is a freelance writer from South Australia and has extensive experience in the world of authorship.


I’d like to share some of the insights from her article “Word Counts for Fiction: How Long Should Your Story Be?” Be sure to read the full article for Lee’s description of the different types of fiction and word counts for e-books too.


Flash Fiction

100 – 1,000 words


Short Story

1,000 – 7,500 words



17,500 – 40,000 words



40,000 – 100,000 words


Happy Writing :->
