Hi guys, i am new around here. I wanted to post parts of my, tentatively titled, novel/ passion project called "The Ashes of Chaos". but before that I want to ask an elementary question. Are chapters really necessary? I am almost 75% through my novel (with approx. 85000 words) and I have only divided them into 'books' or 'Arcs'. Will it make any difference? I am writing the 3rd arc/ book now and have not bothered to organize the book into chapters. I am in my first draft. and even in the final draft, how important are the chapter?
