POLL: How long episodes / chapters should be?

So anyone here a Love Is a Drug fan by Anneka Moon? Her first two episodes are sixteen minutes then all episodes after that are 30-45 minutes long :scream: lol. I know this because I’ve screen recorded all the episodes of the story.

Her story has 2.8 million reads.

I think it depends on your capability as well as story line.
Most my episodes are between 10 -20 minutes but I wrote one that took me like a month that ended up being almost 7000 lines and it was like an hour long.

I probably could have split it up but it was so crucial to the story line that I just kept going. I don’t recommend this because some people will not like it.

I haven’t done anything like this since but I recommend not looking at lines because if you include a lot of directing, an episode can still be very short so perhaps timing is the way to go. :heart:

Contest Wise – How long do you prefer chapters to be? :open_book:

  • Less than 10 minutes.
  • 10-15 minutes.
  • I don’t mind the length.

I’d say around 15 minutes. As below 15 mins it’s too short but if it’s above 15 minutes I would get bored.

Wow my post is so old, surprised someone responded to it after quite a long time lol, I’ll check it out later.

I think it should be 5 - 10 minutes. If it’s too long, I’ll start to get a little annoyed!

Oh wow, I had no idea this existed! Definitely going to give it a listen.
