Oh, dear. Poor Jacob, and his tumbly nature! We’ll just have to wait and find out. I can’t imagine the scolding he’d get if he caused an earthquake in the room, lol.
As for chapter length, I must point out that with the development of my writing style has some changes to how chapters are set up. I gravitate towards suspense and anxiety, therefore we’ve gone from chapters that were usually ~3k to 4k words to chapters that can vary from ~1.5k to 5k words. With three updates a week, this shouldn’t be a problem. And there will be times that the word count goes under!
Because word count should never drive how a story is set up. The writing itself should do that.
