Question about length

I know that this is a very subjective question, however I have to ask…

I see a lot of people talk about stories being too long or too short, What is generally a good amount of “lines” to aim to reach when writing a chapter?

In my latest story, I have about 1800 lines per chapter (approximately), but I know that this can also vary depending on how many of those lines actually make the story longer verses lines being inserted to change a layer of an overlay or something like that.

Is there a general number that us creators should be aiming for to keep readers happy?

In my own opinion length of your story is very important. I would state that 1000-1500 lines would be a perfect amount. If your story is above 1500 I would consider it to be too long. If your story is shorter then 1000 then it’ll more then likely be very short.

yEAH, in my opinion, 1,400-1,700 lines makes the Episode 10-15 min.
