Can it overlap?

Discussion started on

Is it episodic, where each chapter is its own story (seven point structure) that focuses on one plot aspect? I'm currently at 17.3K at the moment. And while I sort of lost the episodic format around chapter seven, up to that point I found myself having sort of mini-episodes that tied into the larger arc later.

Is there a better way to have an episodic work, while giving a very rough sense of a possible larger arc? This wasn't so much of an issue with my YA Techno Mystery, but it's become a bit of a problem with this pre-industrial revolution sort of fantasy. I feel a little bit out of my element.:/

The bright side is I found it a fairly efficient method to go from 1K to 4.5K.
