Okay, let's roll. I've always wondered how many words do you need to make a complete book? Well, according to several sources, including Writers Digest, here's an approximate count that publishers look for, taking into account that there are always exceptions.
Adult Novels: Commercial and Literary like romance, mystery, suspense, horror, literary & thrillers Between 80,000 & 90,000 words
Science Fiction & Fantasy: 100,000-110,000 words
Middle Grade Books- Ages 9-12, 20,000-45,000 words
Picture Books- 500-600 words
Young Adult Books: 50,000-70,000 words
Memoir- 80,000-90,000 words
So now you know,,,,,,,what's keeping you from writing?
