I've been thinking about this for quite some time now, but how much does chapter length actually influence the experience of readers? For this book right now, I have several chapters ranging from 2000 words up to almost 4000. I'm not too concerned about that when speaking of the book I have in mind as a whole though. Thing I'm worried about is the first 2 of them. The first is just under 2000, and the second is well above 3600. Will people actually notice this? Can the length of the first chapter create some standard or norm that people will remember when they flip the page onto the second, or the whole book for that matter?
