So my novel is around 85,000 words long and has 65 chapters. Most of those chapters are only 3-4 pages long. Each of those chapters told a part of the story I wanted to tell before moving onto the next part. However, I think such a large number of chapters isn't a good thing. What are your opinions on it? Would a publisher look down on such a thing? Is it too distracting for readers? I guess I'll just have to join a lot of those chapters together to get the number down. Also, what are peoples opinions on the amount of chapters in a book? Should it be between a certain range?
