As a writer I want to write a book you can’t put down. I want to write a book that makes you feed your kids cereal for dinner because you lost track of time.
But how do I do that? I think a great way is to end a chapter with a BANG. End with something that makes you read on:
- End with a threat
- End with a mystery
- End with a kiss, but no reaction
- End with trauma (emotional or physical)
- End with emanate danger
- End with a discovery
- End with a question
- End with conflict
There are more examples. Just think about what you want your readers to do, keep reading or do the dishes, and you will find ways to end the chapter.
PLEASE DON’T READ AND DRIVE
