Lord Baelish Posted October 31, 2009 Share Posted October 31, 2009 It depends on how you structure the chapters. In one story I wrote, I started a new chapter for each change in POV, like Martin. Then, my average chapter length was about 2'500 words. In my current novel, I have 3-4 POVs per chapter, so the average length is about 6'000-6'500. There isn't a set length that is "right". Don't try to increase the length of a chapter with pointless filler. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
