I’m about halfway through Chapter 7 of Transformation Paraphysics, and it’s sitting at around 39,000 words. I got some feedback that the chapters felt a bit long. I checked against chapter lengths of some popular novels (good popular, not shit popular), and indeed that was the case. TPOAP chapters are hanging around 6k words a piece, while the mean for the references is in the 4,500 word range. That’s not a lot, but it was enough for one beta reader to notice.
While I’m not going to cut words, I’m going to see if I can move the chapter breaks a bit. I have them set pretty deliberately for certain parts of the story, so it’s going to have to work as a net positive for the reader’s experience.
