I didn't consider waiting until I'm finished the first draft to better plan my chapters... that's a good point. I suppose I'll take the common advice of 'write without editing' until I'm done. Thanks, John.

Realistic Fiction to me has a modern time setting with events that are very possible to happen, given the lack of sci-fi or fantasy or supernatural elements and the like. This is good too: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fiction#Realistic_Fiction
