I never realized there were so many distinctions.  Apparently, the rules are not set in stone but did you know that a Short Story is 7,500 words or less?
I always thought a short story was just that.  A story that was short.  Apparently Friday nights is a novelette - a story that has between 7,500 and
17,499 words.  I guess that would make Surrender at approximately 16,950 words a novelette, although I've classified it as a novella.  Unbound fits well within the range for a novella - anything between 17,500 and 40,000 words. Three guesses about the word count for a novel.  Yep, anything beyond 40,000.   I learn something new nearly every day.
