3-7K chapters are my usual long scenes, but it depends also, as sometimes less can be more impactful.
They might go as low as 1K.
I usually split the bigger chapters in volumes here, for visibility. But it varies.
If you are talking max in a session, it all comes down to inspiration and mood.
Times like these I drop asleep on the keyboard, having lost track of time.
Depends on how my motivation is. Having a visual disability makes it tough to see the screen most days but I usually aim for 3k - 4k words per chapter. This can usually take me anywhere between 7 hours to several days. Right now, I'm hard at work on my chapter 7 of Grimfel and I've been writing parts of it for a week.
So I say, fret not on your pace. Do it in your own time. For as long as you have a completed story, is all that matters.
I prefer reading stories with 2500+ words per chapter. If I notice that the first chapter is quite a bit less I won’t read the story. I’ve found that unreasonably short chapters is sign of poor quality.
I don’t mind if a chapter has 15k. However there is probably some limit where I find it bothersome.
Generally my chapters range between 1000-2000 words, but I also get distracted easily so it takes me forever. Either that or I have a block and stop writing something for a few days and then when I go back to it I hate it and scrap the draft...
