Writing Tip of the Day

A Chapter Chart is a useful tool for organizing your work, one that will help keep you on track as you write. Most books of 85,000 to 100,000 words have 20-25 chapters of 4-5,000 words each. Placing your constructed events at fairly regular intervals within the chapters of your chart, beginning with the first incident in Chapter one and ending with the grand climax in the next to last chapter (leaving the final chapter for the resolution) will give you an instant visual reference for where you are in your story.
