How many parts are equivalent to ~5.4k words?

What do you count as your first four chapters?

I have like an A/N and two title cards but the chapters are labeled normally.

I have no idea, probably three chapters.

Well, I noticed you had your word counts at the bottom of your chapters.

The first four chapters would be 9100 words.

The first three chapters would be 6247 words.

Would you like to do my entire short story (5413 words) in exchange for three chapters?

Can you check?

Okay, the first three excluding a little note at the beginning are around 1.8k.

oh whoops the WCs I have on Wattpad are different from the ones I have in my manuscript so that’s my bad, I forgot I split the chapters differently. I’ll read your short story if you read two of my chapters? since 6247 is longer than yours. I don’t mind reading extra and I don’t want to make you read more of mine since its a working draft and isn’t very good right now
