What are the proper number of words for a novelette, a novella, and a novel?
Magazine publishers and other commercial outlets generally have various number-of-words requirements for articles and short stories, but are there standard word-lengths for the above three categories?
i guess, there is no such thing as "proper" in writing a novelette, novella or novel, for as long as the flesh is present we can say that it is an ART. doesn't matter where will it qualify.
Based on my won research each publisher has a different requirement when it comes to words count. When you contact them they will give you a submissions guidelines and in those guidelines there will be a section on minimum and maximum requirement for each book level. So it is better to get this info before doing any submissions.
