Don’t forget about novellas. While they were popular in the past, modern day publishers prefer to publish books that are at least 80,000 words long. But the novella is really the perfect length for many people. After all, a lot of us are busy. Some people long for a cool story to read, but don’t think they can manage a full novel.
A novella can be read within a couple of hours – often in one sitting. You get a rich story without all the filler. It’s the happy medium between a short story and a novel.
I love novellas myself – I enjoy writing them and reading them. I hope they’ll make a comeback on the larger scale, too. They should never be a lost art. ❤
