Short chapters with frequent releases - eg 1,000-2,000 words
Or Long chapters with infrequent releases - eg 2,000- 6,000 words
Thanks in advance.
At the moment my chapters are between 1.5-2.5 k words on average and I'm feel i'm getting enough content in there with the opportunity in the future to expand on the chapters in terms of details.
Any input is greatly appreciated.
One thing I absolutely agree with from that post though is consistent size. my chapters are generally within 200 words of each other, and now that I am in my rhythm never less than 2k.
I've edited my chapters numerous times but know they can still be more polished grammmatically.
I'm trying to get a nice backlog going so that my edits aren't huge things by the time I release the next chapters.
I've built up an additional 3 chapters which i'll release 1 per day for now and i'm keeping them between 1.5-2.5k in length.
I think it will be easier to extend the length of each chapter with more time between writing it and publishing it as I re-read first and add/edit where I see fit.
Is there a way to have sound files on a page?
I'm wanting to organise in the future to have a song that I will composed and have produced and to be able to be played so that instead of a reader just reading a song they can just listen to it?
As far as chapters go, the sweet spot is generally recommend to be around 1.5-2.5k per. Don't base your upload schedule on that though, base it on how much you can comfortably commit to in a week. You don't want to get yourself into a position where you've committed to writing and releasing more chapters than you can reasonably handle and then burn yourself out trying to keep up with it.
I only do 2 1.2-1.5k chapters per week at the moment and so far I'm doing fine. Update consistency is an important factor in this, I think. I have my release schedule written at the bottom of my story synopsis and have held to that since the start.
I think i’ll stick with how i’m currently going. I have yet to let my readers know what sort of schedule i’m going to work off of. However having said that I plan to release a chapter per day or two for the first month and then ease up into three chapters each week.
