A lot of my energy has been going toward getting ready for Emerald City Comic Con, but I'm still writing. (Half a page, half a page, half a page onward - The Charge of the Write Brigade, if you will.)
The early Brimstone novels were all eight chapters long. It was sort of a joke, that they would all be eight chapters, no matter how long the chapters got. Potato Surprise - 8 chapters, at about 26.6K. Hell for the Company - 8 chapters, at about 22.7K. Fear of Frogs - 8 chapters, at about 32K (you see what started to happen there?)
By the time we get to The Hunt for Red Fluffy, I had to add a ninth chapter and hit about 43K words. We'd gone from snackity-snack size novellas to a light dinner novel size.
A Fine Mess is starting to scare me. I'm trying to keep the chapters a reasonable size, and I'm already at chapter five. This is nowhere near the midpoint of the story. Um. Well, then. We'll see how this goes...

Hey, I can never get enough of your writing, so to me the longer, the better!
