Shortest Books I’d Ever Write
Reading time: 1 minute —
I just finished writing an 84,000-word manuscript. It took me approximately 150,000 words to arrive at the final count. So now, let’s the opposite. A blog comment a week ago got me thinking about the shortest book I’d ever write. So here is my list of the Top 9 Thinnest Books I’d write, based on my personal history. Your list may vary.
9. List-Making for Dummies
8. Successful Pickup Lines
7. Query Letters that Charmed Literary Agents
6. Driver’s Ed 101 & Parenting 101 (Special two-page edition)
5. The Jack-in-the-Box Diet
4. The Joy of Socks
3. My Little Book of Gourmet Vegan Recipes
2. Fun with Prologues
1. What Men Understand About Women
Eat, Play, Sleep didn’t make the list because I wouldn’t be able to come up with an opening line for two of the three chapters. That book shall remain unwritten for the time being.
