Don't say chapters straight away, because nobody can do them, unless those chapters are ultra short. Just write what you can, and continue on the next day and day after that, and so on and so fort until it is done. You need to keep writing it till your face is blue and you have the whole she-bang on the screen. After that, it's a bit different ballgame. You either edit, or you rewrite the whole thing again and again and again ...
But please, don't feel that I'm trying to put you down, because I'm not. All what I try to say here comes from the bitter experience that I have gathered over the years I've been working on my own baby ... well bastard child.
