One recent Booker prizewinner's book is only 160 pages long. That's around 40,000 words.
So, a Nanonovel is more than enough at 50,0000 words.
Of course, it does help if they're good words, arranged in a spiffing order. But let's not sweat the small stuff while we're doing Nano or we'll never get there.
Oh, and the book in question is being nominated for the Costa Book Awards. Does the Guardian get an award for the most unreadable headline ever?
