Hi there, I’m Zeke! So, I need some opinions on whether or not I should separate my chapters. As in, cut some long chapters into two parts.
I’m aware that Wattpad readers, at least statistically, prefer shorter chapters. Somewhere along the lines of 1000 words to a max of 2000 words.
My chapters vary in size. The ones that around the 2000 zone, I’m not worried about. But certain chapters have reached up to mid 4000 words. And I would have separated them BUT, I feel as though the flow and pace would not be as smooth as it would be as one single chapter.
So here is the big question: should I separate the chapters even if it means that the flow is not as smooth or would it be okay to retain a long chapter for the sake of the good pace?
