Does anyone know what the ratio is between a single-spaced Times New Roman 12 font page and the average novel page are?

For example, if you wrote 300 pages in Word with *points above*, how many pages would that likely be if it were published as a novel?

I've wondered this for awhile, but I have no idea how to go about finding out. Any ideas?

The rule of thumb is that 250 words are on each novel page, so you'd just check your word count and divide that by 250.

Here's a good page on how to check it in the format you'd actually need to submit it in, as the 250 words thing isn't a perfect guide.

This is great! Thanks!

... Huh, I've been doing single-spaced writing all this time. I guess I just figured since novels are single-spaced, so should what I offer up!

wow, me too...

Thanks for the question Ifritah. I've been wondering the same thing as I have been writing my novel. Also, thanks to miggy for the response.

Re: wow, me too...

You should go do the math for how many pages you've *really* written. Seriously, it is the COOLEST feeling EVER.
