So, I am currently writing a novel. It will follow traits of Lord of the Rings and the Wheel of Time. If I phrased that in a way that is difficult to understand, I simply mean it will be in the style of the preceding two series - My book uses no characters, places, names, etc. of Lord of the Rings or the Wheel of Time, they were simply examples. Anyway, readers of books like the ones I have just mentioned, or similar novels, will know they are very long. As is my book. I have estimated that the first in my series of novels, will have around 300,000 to 350,000 pages at least, split into two books. Many frown at this number, deeming it too long, but that remains to be seen. Anyway, to my question. My smallest chapter is around 7,000 words in length, and my longest being over 10,000 words longer, reaching around 17,500 words. So my query is, is such a variation in chapter lengths seen as unprofessional and generally disliked? I am currently working on making the 7,000 word long chapters longer, but I do not want to have to add needless conversation or description. Thank you in advance for any feedback! Anathema.
