What would be a reasonable wordcount for a new author's manuscript? My latest WIP is a parody of the mystery genre, and my current goal is 80K. Would that be a good length?
Agree & understood.And 100K isn't unhread <sic> of by any means.
Anyone know if this advice is still current? Last entry here was 2004... I am sitting on a 72K mystery, no bites yet, not sure if it's my QL, length, writing style or deodorant. Can anyone help with this particular question?
