I was wondering what you do if you are writing MG and have a nonstop action episode that you know is going to be long (10K words or something)? It's easy to put a new chapter when you start a new scene, but some scenes are inherently long.

I don't worry about it in adult novels, though for me the sweet spot is between 8 and 25 printed pages.

Read samples of my Martian series (by Dorothy Piper) and two romances (by Joni Havel) on Smashwords.
Hard copies of all are on Amazon.

That's when my girls got into them -- all four started them in second grade. Three of the four got to book four or five and lost interest for a while, until their maturity caught up some with the characters, then it was back on through seven. I spend a lot of time with kids that age in the library, so I know my girls aren't typical, but I also know that about one out of 6 or 7 kids that age goes through basically the same thing. At least in my random, but not scientific sampling of kids who live in my zip code.
