Moreover, how long is a novella?
To be honest, in modern times, the term is rarely used,and novelettes are rarely published singly. A novelette is longerthan a short story, but shorter than a novella. The wordcount is usually between 7,500 words to 17,500 words.
Likewise, what makes a novella? The novella is a literary genre of writtenfiction. We can broadly say that a novella is shorter than afull-length novel but longer than a short story. They are typicallyabout 60 to 120 pages, or 7,500 to 40,000 words.
In respect to this, how many words make a novella?
|Novel||40,000 words or over|
|Novella||17,500 to 39,999 words|
|Novelette||7,500 to 17,499 words|
|Short story||under 7,500 words|
Is 50 000 words enough for a novel?
For most publishers, a book is“novel-length” when it's between 50,000and 110,000 words. At a writers conference I recentlyattended, publishing veteran Jane Friedman said 80,000 wordsis good for most fiction, below 60,000 isn't novellength territory, and above 120,000 is likely toomuch.
