a 7500 word short story is probably harder to place than a 5000 word short story.

There simply aren't many magazine markets that take submissions longer than 7500 words. Go on Duotrope and do a search. Because there are so few, it becomes really competitive. If you write better than everyone else, I guess it doesn't matter.

A 45K word novel is harder to place than a 70-100K novel.

exceptions happen.

Looks like we’ve got quite a thread going. Thank you all for your patience and your guidance.

I haven’t pinned down which genre my story is yet. Since it’s going to become a novel the word count, which I’ve set a goal of around 80,000, should help narrow it down.

I was misinformed about the official lengths of certain genres. Again, thank you for sharing that information.

For me, the best place to be is between 7K and 10K words (for adult fiction)
