Beyond 5000


On May 15, 2020 I broke the coveted 4,000 word count threshold while writing School Bus 533 by 138 words. This was a monumental accomplishment for me. Doing so made me curious about the word count of other writers. So I decided to take a peek to see if I was in their class. And here's what I discovered.





Ernest Hemingway 500 words












Arthur Hailey 600 words










Carol Shields 600 words











Barbara Kingsolver 1000 words


















Stephen King 2000 words




















Anne Rice 3000 words












Arthur Conan Doyle 3000 words













Charles Hamilton 4000 words

















Jerrimiah Stonecastle 5000 words

















John Creasey 6000 words














Michael Crichton 10,000 words
