I think chapters of one word come across as gimmicky because there is no missing them, and once is enough in the land of literature.

This is interesting…I tend to rely too much (when writing by hand) on the number of pages. My last one I think was badly divided, but I’ll go over it and fix it up once I’m done typing.

My question (I think it’s great to have people with strong opinions on this stuff around) is it really okay to divide up long chapters into sections? I’ve always done it. I think it helps me think better for scene-by-scene structure. But I’m not sure my chapters are really long enough to warrant it. When submitting, should I remove them?
