Oh, yeah….after complaining about how hard it was to write/ finish my WIP, FIERCE, I completely forgot to mention that I did finish it. On Tuesday at 12:52 pm. 228 pages, 61, 228 words.
Jo, what is the average word count of a YA novel?
45-60,000 so I went a wee bit over– but the manuscript I sold to Scholastic was just over 70,000 and they want me to add to it in the revision, so the rules are somewhat flexible.
