I've got a question. One which, I'm pretty sure, most serial writers can relate to. And that is, how to allocate your words, into chapter lengths and chapter frequency.
Currently, I'm writing at a pace double to my goals. My backlog is experiencing too much growth. Ideally, I'd like to have it stay the same, at around five to eight chapters, which suits my needs. But in being careful, I set goals beneath my output. Right now my chapters are averaging 2k words, which I feel is slightly stifling. And they are being posted on Saturdays.
Since my weekly output is almost exactly double, at 4k+, I have an option. Two 2k+ updates, or one 4k? Is it better for a writer to have more frequency, or more length? And to what degree is it important? I know some would say post as often as possible, and some would say not to sacrifice that to chapters so short. I could try a biweekly 3k update, but that might be stretching it for me. Would probably be fine.
What would you do, with your serial, were your weekly output fixed at 4-6k words, hypothetically?
