So I'm writing a story divided into three acts. Should each act be roughly the same length? Let's say my novel ends up being 60,000 Words. Does that mean 20,000 words should introduce the characters and the conflict, the second 20,000 words the conflict starts to build up, and the last 20,000 words the conflict plays out, resolves, and the book concludes? Or does it not matter? Also, how soon in a story should I introduce the main conflict? Is 8 Chapters of suspense building too much before the main conflict is introduced.
