My first chapter is sort of ongoing right now, but I see no reason to place word-count restrictions on yourself.

First chapter (and the work as a whole) currently clocks in at 3525 words, and it's early yet.

Prospective title for Chapter 2: Chapter the Second, In Which the Author Without Provocation Begins to Malign the Funeral Industry.

God this is fun.

Totally depends. Some authors do very very short chapters (some of them only one scene long); others do very long chapters and have maybe ten of them in the book; some are evil like Robin McKinley writing Sunshine and have no chapters at all, thus dragging you headfirst through the book without giving you that convenient stopping point. <g>
