I’ve been working on probably my largest project to date and looking back, I’ve realized that there are a few chapters that are horribly disproportioned in comparison to the majority. Most of the way through I’ve managed to keep chapters pretty much self-contained (in the sense that most events start and finish within each chapter, carrying forward only the main plot elements) into about five pages on average - but there are a few (admittedly where the centre of the action lies) that are over fifteen pages. Both chapters can’t really be split into further chapters without breaking the trend I’ve set myself that each event is self-contained in one chapter. But looking over them, I also get the impression they’d drag on too long if they weren’t broken up. Another problem is that there would be no obvious place to split them up. Do you guys feel its important to keep a natural chapter balance? Or I am I obsessing over nothing?
