I've written out a timeline/ order of events for my story, like an incredibly specific summary, but now I'm having trouble determining how to split it up into chapters. When I first tried to create the chapter outline, I ended up making 30 chapters within the first quarter of book and that was simply too much. I need a way to condense my events timeline into chapter summaries or just a scene timeline. Also, I created a timeline for the backstory and I'm not sure exactly how to incorporate it. Any advice would be appreciated.
