Work, kids, social events and more keeping you too busy to read the full length novel the way you use to? Well, don't worry. You don't have to give up reading. Meet the Novella. The novella is defined as having a word count between 17,500 and 40,000 making it a quick easy read.
A novella has generally fewer conflicts than novels and the endings are located at the brink of change. Unlike novels, they are generally not divided into chapters, but by sections with the use of white space. They are intended to be read at a single sitting. Therefore, fitting more easily into busy lives.
