…Expecting a variety of ‘it depends’ answers here, interested to see what others think:-
Short draft, c.64,000 words. 27 chapters, average length 2450 words.
Ch. 1 and 27 are prologue and epilogue, very short.
Ch 2-26 vary from 1300 to 3300 to arrive at that average length.
Then there are the exceptions; ch 18 and 24 are a short flashbacks (730 and 1200 words), that make sense in context.
Ch 16 is 3800+ and chapter 3, a big action set piece, is 4300+. This one I’m thinking needs to be split because it’s so far out of whack with the rest.
How far do I worry about dividing this up into satisfying ‘bed-time’ chapter-lengths?
