Hello friends. I am in the process of writing a novel. How many pages do you think there should be in a novel? In electronic tersm how much should be the size of the novel if typed as a text?

When writing, you should never, never, forget that quality is better than quantity, anybody can write a whole lot of junk, but it takes a good author to write a decent novel. Write things that you, yourself, would be happy reading. Otherwise, novels vary a lot in size, some are 30,000, some are 100,000, but it doesn't really matter.

It depends on the topic you are writing, your style and your projected audience. But for neophytes I believe it would be more advatageous on their part to write a lesser paged novel as a starter. But for Tom Clancy or Robert Ludlum, number of pages doesn't matter at all.
