Do you write the whole first draft, then go back and make chapters? Or do you chapter-it-up as you go along?
The reason I ask, is because I’ve had several writer-friends tell me that they’d be happy to critique one of my chapters. I just don’t think I could give them a chapter until I’ve written the entire book first. I started out numbering chapters, but quickly realized it was pointless.
