A couple months ago I started exploring code, and more specifically, ChoiceScript. Having been working on actually writing my first HG novel for only a couple of weeks now, this question only just occured to me.
As of currently, my first chapter comes in at well over 15,000 words without code (and doesn’t have as many branching paths as some of the later chapters might). I keep coming back to it and questioning if I’ve made it too long or too short. Is there a certain average for a word count in a ChoiceScript story like this? Or is it just dependant on the author?
