Hey. I was just wondering if I was the only one who does this.
Being a mainly visual learner, I like to make charts, which allow me to see data. For example, I will make bar graphs based on chapter by chapter word lengths. I did this after reading that writers should try to not overload their readers. On occasion they should write shorter chapters, but only where it works. This doesn’t mean forcing shorter chapters.it only mean try not to write back to back to back loooong chapters.
With this chart, it allows me to see how my story flows length wise. Am I writing too many lengthy chapters back to back. If so, can cut them down with detracting from the plot.
What are your thoughts?
