Word Count

Post by Lunafox »

Hi, I was wondering, if anyone has any idea, what the word count for Twilight is, and for that matter the sequels. I know it sounds like an odd question, but I'm curious, and I can't find the information anywhere else :D

Please help if you can.

Thx,
Luna :)

Hey

That is a hard question because i've been looking for it on the internet but there is no info about that, but i've been able to get the word count for New Moon (134.300 more or less) and Eclipse (149000 more or less). Don't take this numbers too seriously but it's the most aproximate number i could get

THis comes from Stephenie's website under Twilight
My big break came in the form of an assistant at Writers House named Genevieve. I didn't find out until much later just how lucky I was; it turns out that Gen didn't know that 130,000 words is a whole heck of a lot of words.

Thanks you guys so much! I know it's awfully hard to find out, cause I did try myself, and had no luck whatsoever. Thanks for taking the time to help me. Wow...130000+ words...

I wouldn't have guessed. :) Thx again :)

woah. the books get thicker and thicker... and so do the plots... hey, speaking of word count... does anyone know how many times the title is mentioned in the story itself...? as in..in the body... so in twilight, how many times was "twilight" mentioned..?

when i tried counting it... i found three twilight's in book 1
two new moon's in book 2...

I think there was only one in Eclipse, if I'm remembering correctly there was a quote that Jacob said that went something along these lines
"I can handle the clouds, but I can't fight an eclipse."
and that was the first and last time I saw the actual word eclipse in Eclipse.
haha

That's quite scary... yesterday I read a Twilight fanfic http://www.fanfiction.net/s/4074018/1/ (awesome, by the way!!) which is 135,614 words (including AN's).
It's weird that some fanfics are longer, or as long, as the books themselves!!
