    How many words does a piece of writing have to have to qualify as a novel? I’ve read claims that it’s only 50,000 words, and others claiming it’s 100,000. Which is it?

    50K is about the very minimum for qualifying for novel length, in my opinion. Here’s a Wikipedia article on the subject.


    Stephen King says 40K, but 50K is probably the least amount a publisher would take. Most prefer 60K though.

    Most people say <40k is a novella. Depends on who you ask I guess.
