Mini-Quiz: Classification of Fiction by Length

by Ron Kurtus (updated 6 June 2022)

Take this Mini-Quiz to check your understanding of the lesson material.

1. What type of interesting story can you tell in only 300 words?

Something without a plot or characters

An amusing personal experience

All stories require more than 300 words

2. What is a purpose of a short story?

It can be easily read in one sitting

The wording is so compact that you need to read it several times

It is less expensive than a novel

3. Must you write a novel on 6 X 9 inch or 5.5 X 8.5 inch paper?

Yes, because you want it to look exactly like the book would

No one is really sure, since authors are so secretive

No; most write the draft of their novels on standard sized paper

If you got all three correct, you are on your way to becoming a Champion in Fiction Writing. If you had problems, you had better look over the material again.
