I've noted a lot of my chapters tend to be rather short. I tend to go between 2800 words to 4000 words for a chapter, (obviously this one is a tad shorter than that). At roughly 250 words a page when it's printed, a 2200 word chapter will only go 9 pages, which is quick, although I have read books where the chapter is only a page. I wonder some times if the chapters are a little choppy because they're short. I know people will say, a chapter ends where it ends and not to worry about an arbitrary number of words. Still, I wonder if readers prefer shorter or longer chapters or does it matter.
Yeah, I know, more stuff to obsess over instead of obsessing about finishing the book. Sigh.
Our roommate, mollymorrison had a friend come up tonight, and I introduced her to Rurouni Kenshin (one of my favorite anime series). We watched the first two DVDs tonight and I think I've corrupted another new anime person (cue diabolical laughter here).
18 days left to complete 15 chapters. Going to be close.
Current Harbinger final draft status:
