Users have reported having no trouble working with Word documents containing up to 10,000 pages. However, because of the time it takes to open and close files and the memory required to store such large documents, most people recommend limiting documents to no more than 3-4 thousand pages.
A Microsoft Word Document has 200 words on a single page and is 8KB in size. That translates to 128 pages in 1MB (1,024 divided by 8). That translates to 131,072 pages in 1 GB (1,024 times 128), or around 130,000 word pages per 1 GB of RAM. A typical 30,000-word document would use about 1 MB of space.
One terabyte of Word documents is expected to contain 85,899,345 pages. If you can genuinely create that much stuff, you're in for a big archiving challenge. I am now reading David McCullough's book "John Adams," which is around 650 pages long. It was published in 2009. That means I'd have to write two more books like it every year for the next century just to fill up my archive.
The way we store information today is not very efficient. We rely on large libraries and data centers filled with millions of books and files that take up a lot of space. An alternative approach would be to store our knowledge directly in our brains, but we're a long way from being able to do that.
For now, we need ways to store information that are both accessible and affordable. The cloud is popular because of its efficiency and ease of use. There are also services available that will copy your files to multiple servers all over the world, ensuring their survival in case something happens to any of them.
Word documents are the most common form of file sharing online. If you had an archive containing only these files, it would be impossible to open it unless you knew exactly where to look. The cloud solves this problem by storing multiple copies of your files in different locations that can be accessed from anywhere in the world. As long as there is internet access, you can open your document.
In plain text format, a 100-page test document I generated in Microsoft Word took up 376K. When I saved the identical document in its original Word format, the file size grew to 872K. Word documents, it appears, need a significant amount of overhead for formatting and other information. At 10 bytes per character, this amounts to 8.7M bytes, or 8700 characters.
Documents that are rich with formulas and drawings can get much bigger than 100 pages. A 300-page document made up entirely of formulas and drawings would require 3000 characters per page, for a total file size of about 110M characters.
The actual size of a document depends on how detailed you keep your text and any embedded objects such as images or videos. A document that contains only headings and paragraphs with no formulas or drawings will take up less space than one with many complex charts and graphs.
A word document's file size also affects how long it takes to download over a network connection. The larger the file, the longer it takes to transmit over the internet. In my case, the 100-page document took nearly five minutes to download from Amazon's servers. The same document sent as an email attachment was completed in under a minute.
There are several factors that determine how large a document will be when you save it. The main factor is the number of words in the document.
Novels, novellas, and other published books are examples of 60-page texts. A normal single-spaced page has 500 words. So, a 60-page book means that there are eight hours of writing on each page.
Books are made up of pages which are in turn made up of cells. Each cell can be either blank or filled with text or graphics. On average, a book will contain about 200 to 250 rows of text or images. This is called the "layout". The printer then determines how many pages will be required by setting the number of columns across and then down. For example, if they want a book with four equal width columns on each page, they would send this information to the printer who would make the pages accordingly.
It is possible to write a book that lasts longer than one hour (17,280 words). However, such a book would be extremely rare because it would take years to write!
The final length of a book depends on what you include in it and how long it takes to read it!
A single word page has 500 words, which can range from 800 to 400. 2. A single novel page has 200-400 words, depending on the font size, book, and so on. 7. The average person writes about 250 words per hour, 5 days per week for 30 weeks per year. That's about 91 million words, which is more than enough to fill a terabyte disk.
That said, writing that much material is extremely difficult. It's not just a question of time but of focus. You need to clear out everything else in your mind and concentrate only on your story, otherwise you won't be able to write coherently or accurately.
In addition, part of your audience will leave when you finish writing something new. You will lose readers because volume #1 of your series goes up for sale at 8am on Monday morning. They can't all read it at once! So, if you want to preserve their interest until the next book comes out, you'll need to keep writing.
Finally, there's storage space and bandwidth to consider. Even if you write a single page every day for a year, you'll use up a lot of disk space. And people are hungry for content - especially online - so the more you write, the more attention your work will get.
