Is there any kind of rules or standards when it comes to how many words or pages a chapter in your novel is on average? My current project is getting chapters on average 3-4 word processor pages long. I think this is good for my teenager target audience since I remember when I was a teenager I didn't enjoy reading long chapters, but rather shorter ones so it was easy to take a break from reading whenever I wanted to. Unfortunately, I don't know what kind of standards there are for these kinds of things. Do publishers see relatively short chapters as a sign of amateurism? How many words should a chapter contain on average? Actually, I wanted to know what's a relatively accurate conversion between pages in a word processing program to actual book pages? Are they pretty much 1:1?
