10,000+ word chapter.

Ugh, so I’m editing this monster and right smack in the middle is a 10,000+ word chapter, just looming over me like a hungry beast.

I’m tempted to split it, but that leaves me with an odd number of chapters and doesn’t follow what I’ve done with the rest of the chapters. I.e., each chapter is a self-contained moment. Splitting this one kind of ruins the whole theme I’ve got going. But 10,000 words? That’s 40 ms pages. That’s someone hitting that chapter and being like, “This thing goes on forever!”

Blargh. I’ll leave it and let my editor decide whether I should split it or not.
