    Thanks to all the responders. Very helpful and interesting. May I just add that I _do_ have structure for the book - there's a teaser labeled
    "prologue," a postscript labeled "epilogue," and the balance is organized into 5 parts identified with names of seasons but not numbered. (The story begins during one summer and ends during the following one.) Having done the spade work, I've gone into draft, and that's where I ran into the consideration about having (and numbering) defined chapters. I'm not going to mess with them. The way the tale is set up, I think it will rip along better without having those gulfs to jump across.
