I have been recieving SO MANY mixed signals about word count limits for books. I’m so freaking confused, and the stupidness of it all, there’s no direct answer to what a word count should be for a YA fantasy/romance novel, or two part series/novel. ERGH! I’ve heard nothing over 100k, 80k, 50k, AND NOW 120k. Oh my Bajebus! Will anyone make up their freaking minds?! So I can ACTUALLY start scoping out a stop limit for my books?! I wish people will give me a feaking straight answer!
I’ve even looked on writer’s digest, and they give soooooo many word counts limits (on the same subject) that it’s not even funny! Some even say it’s changing that it’s getting longer! AHH! Give me a straight answer!
Well anyways on my bigger projects I’m giving myself a 120k limit, and on my smaller one shot projects 80k-100k. It just depends on how much I want to tell.
So what is your guy’s thoughts of word count limitations??
