How long should be your story?

I was wondering how long should I write my current story. I have an estimated 20,000 words ready to be typed. But will that be okay? So I started digging the internet. And what I found was quite an amazing anatomy of a story that I would like to share with you all. Remember, in most cases, the industry standard preferred length is 250 words per page.

Micro-Fictionabout 100 words1 page
Flash Fiction100-1,000 wordsabout 4 pages
Short Story1,000-7,500 wordsabout 30 pages
Novelette7,500-20,000 wordsabout 100 pages
Novella20,000-50,000 wordsabout 250 pages
Novel50,000-110,000 wordsabout 440 pages
Epics and SequelsOver 110,000 wordsOver 440 pages

Hope this helps all budding writers and beginners.
