word count

I just hit 86,400 words, so a bit on novel length, and I am maybe 3/4 or so through it.. maybe less.
I am at 263 pages, average of 328 words/page
Yikes!! According to the “typewriter world” that is almost 350 pages!

 In the days of the typewriter, a double-spaced page with 1-inch margins would hold an average of 250 words. So you could assume that since 4 pages = 1000 words, 240 pages = 60,000 words, which was the typical length for most mainstream and mystery novels.
