For coherency, my chapter (12.1k words) must be read as a whole--or at least, assuming I find a way to divide it in two, both parts must be read at the same time. Not one on a day and the second one a week or so later."Your story failed to meet the required minimum or maximum word count for story submission on this site. Each chapter must be no less than 100 and no more than 10000 words long."
But I can't post it as a whole.
And I can't have two chapters in the queue at the same time.
Hence my question; why such a limit in the wordcount? My chapters are always over 5k words (except the early ones), and often bordering 10k words. I am constantly trying to cut bits off them so that they could fit. There are also good authors that I know of, who were considering posting their fic here and changed their mind because of the wordcount limit.
Not asking that you should change the rules. Just wondering. *shrug*
EDIT: Thanks for the answer. I'll just divide it in two then.
