I have read books that contain as little as one or two words as chapters, but I’ve also read books where the chapters are over 50 pages. When I write, I don’t put my books into chapter because I really don’t know if it’s the right place. Instead I use these “*****” to symbolize breaks. Now, these breaks could or couldn’t be chapters, but I am too paranoid about it not being in the right place, so that’s why I don’t use chapters. What I have problems with are how and when to end and begin a chapter.
I’ve heard that it’s best to put a chapter between scenes, but how do I know what scene I want to put it between? For example, if I’m writing about a certain day or time, do I wait until the next day?
This is so stressful, and I really don’t now why. Maybe I’m making too much of it, but I really want to work on adding chapters. So, if any of you have any advice, I’d really appreciate any help I can get.
Thanks y’all, and Happy Tuesday!
