When I decided to write my book, my biggest question was how many words do I need to write to have it be considered a novel. So I counted the amount of words there are on a page in two different books. They averaged around 260 words.
Stephenie Meyer also said on her website that, "130K words would equal 500 pages."
Here is my goal. I hope to write 4000 words each chapter. That would give me roughly 15 pages (4000/260 words) per chapter.
My new motto..."I think I can, I think I can." ;)
