Word Counts Revisited
We've talked about word count before (Manuscript Word Count & Format), but I thought it pertinent to bring it up again as Chuck Sambuchino has a great post on the subject from September that I just stumbled upon today: Word Count for Novels and Children's Books: The Definitive Post. It's good to have a guideline particulary when an agent is looking for a reason to move your manuscript out of the pile (and usually that means into the rejection category). Hopefully these guidelines can give us one more reason to keep us out of that rejection pile. Good luck everyone!
