What's the ideal lenght for a chapter in your opinion? I was thinking that, to the reader, finishing a chapter is an important part in the reading; a point to decide if they feel like continuing with the next one or making a pause; so, how do we handle the average lenght of our chapters? In my opinion, when chapters are too short the reader may feel like the story is sort of cheap, while doing long chapters may discourage them. It is almost like they feel chapters as personal conquests "Yeah, I'm done with chapter 3!" they think, and they take a few seconds to evaluate the content so far. Taking this into consideration, it becomes clear that we should pay attention to this element in our novels, just like anything else. Do you have an standart criteria on this regard?
