  1. Well I'm writing a story, and I'd like to try to make it novel legnth. I'm not sure how a page on Microsoft Word compares to a page in a novel, so I was wondering...would anyone happen to know how many words is in your average novel.

  2. I'd say 200 - 250...
  3. Words not pages, but thx;)
  4. You know when I was writing a novel, I just typed out an entire page from "The Godfather" and compared it to that... I can't remember how short it actually was, but my god, it was shorter then I expected.
  5. Oh shit dude. My bad. LOL

    I couldn't even begin' to tell you.... count the words on one page of a book, then multiply it by 200 to get a rough estimate??

    LoL, dunno.
  6. Let your story decide.
