Lenghts in Light-Novels :P
« on: December 28, 2017, 10:23:31 AM »
Hello fellow writers! I'd like to ask you about lengths in light novels :P ...
...I mean chapter lengths and overall length :D . I'm aiming at about 60-70k words for my first novel and averaging words per chapter at about 3k lvl.

How do you write your novels?

Worrying about what a "proper length" is is a trap. Concentrate first on telling a good story. Anything you write should be exactly as long or as short as it needs to be. That goes for sentences, paragraphs, chapters, and whole stories.

Basically, don't let anything but the quality of writing constrain you. Arbitrary numbers are irrelevant
