Would it be better if we picked a proposed end date at the start of a new chapter?

Author Topic: Setting an end date at the start of a chapter  

Topic Original "No modification"
I looked through the chapters and how long each lasted. Mostly we have been taking longer each time, to wrap up a chapter. There are a few chapters that lasted 6 months, when we originally set out to have each chapter last somewhere between 1-1.5 months.

So would it help to focus the posts, by picking a proposed end date at the start? Would it feel too constructed, or would it help to have a deadline?

Learned my lesson: only 2 answers available. :P

There have been some chapters that were genuinely story-packed and deserved that extra time.  You never know when a chapter starts what kind of chapter it's going to be, and I like that.  But I've always had a "feel" for when the chapter has gone on long enough.
