I am aware that the length of chapters, etc.. varies widely according to each individual story.
My first chapter is 5300 words long. I was just wondering how many pages that would make on a typical paperback book. I'm using Courier 12 (And I hate it, I love TNR but most forums advise courier) and it comes to 17 page in MS Word (font size is 12).
Any ideas? I don't want the chapter to be hideously long. I could possibly split this one into two but I need a general idea of how many pages first.
PS I know that font size varies among books. Just a general idea.
