Splitting the chapters again?

With time constraints looming behind me like a molester in an alley, I'm currently wondering if I shouldn't again split the "final" chapter of Astray, in order to keep to the "weeks" theme/structure and because the final section is just prodigiously large and I may not finish it any time soon.

The current document is at 49,000 words (at present). The fifth week is 34,000 of those and perfectly capable of standing alone. There's no need for me to include the fifth and sixth week in the same upload, dragging out the update time.

Would you guys like to see the fifth week of the story sooner, rather than waiting for me to finish the sixth week (which is going to be far larger) which could take me much longer?

I don't particularly want to leave you guys hanging for ages while I finish the entire story, especially since there's still that possibility I mentioned awhile back that I might be indisposed for a minimum of several months - and I have no idea what will happen even after those three months, with regard to my writing time and motivation.

I'm sorry, but I just don't think I can get another 40,000 words, or however big the final week will be, out before this possible interruption comes along. Again, might be absolutely nothing, but there's nothing to lose by posting the fifth week by itself and continuing to work on the latter half of what was originally going to be just one, final chapter.

... Astray was meant to be short and poignant. It's not going to be quite as short as I imagined... I'm sure a ruthless (possibly idiotic) editor could slash down its overall length, but regardless, I seem to have more scenes remaining than I thought.

So, you folks want to see Week Five soon?

Yes. That way when I read the next chapter it won't be the end.

Oh, honestly no, not weeks ago. I'm STILL not too happy with a few scenes, though I will be uploading as soon as I can (sometime this weekend). It's been a very, very busy few months for me...

Truth be told, I "got into the groove" roughly towards the end of the fifth week.and wrote 10,000 words in one night. =3 I haven't been depriving you guys of very much for very long, trust me! *nuzzles the puppy*

Just hand the puppy over and we'll forget this happened :).  Chapter 5 will be out soon.

I personally say split it, if only because I've enjoyed the one week time frames in each chapter.
