Writing a book with Markdown

I like markdown for its simplicity and portability. When writing prose, there is really no need to have more features than markdown already offers. Zettlr seems to be a nice, simplistic editor that lets be focus on the most important thing: the text.

But I wonder, how others would organise their work. When writing multiple chapters, would you rather split this up into multiple files? If so, how do you build relations between those files?

A simple approach is to name your files 01 - Chapter.md. But this does not scale to well, when you want to split your chapters into separate files and want to reorganise your work. You would have to edit a lot of filenames.

How do you tackle this?
