“If there’s a book you really want to read, but it hasn’t been written yet, then you must write it.” ~Toni Morrison
Ending up with 17 extremely lengthy chapters, I was not happy with the flow and what seemed like a “long-read”.
Looking at the first chapter, I began breaking the manuscript into smaller segments. Re-reading the modification, I was surprised at how fast the segments read and how the flow had improved.
Breaking all seventeen chapters into smaller chapters (averaging about 6 pages each). Without cutting anything from the story, I broke up the chapters by scenes, resulting in 53 quick read chapters.
Not only does Auf Wiedersehen – Journey to Goodbye read faster, but editing has been made much easier as well, working with the smaller chapters.
