Question Can I begin my novel with a poem? Are 30000 words enough for a Novel?


Answer:

1. Sure you can begin with a poem. It has been done a number of times.

2. A 30,000-word work of fiction would be classified as a novella, not a novel. Novels must be over 40,000 words and twice that is considered average.
