For the first time, I am a guest blogger on the site Word Sharpeners, a blog created by two writer friends Tamera Lynn Kraft and Carole Brown. I hope you enjoy it. (By the way, I have upgraded to contacts since my senior picture was taken.)
I have another link to another post on Word Sharpeners. It list the expected word counts for different genres of fiction. If you are interested in publishing your writing as a novel some day, you must know the acceptable words counts for it. Agents and editors are only interested in words counts, not page counts. I wish I has known what as the appropriate word count when I started writing my first novel. It was already at epic length when I realized I would have to whack it half to make acceptable to publishers.
