Each chapter has a beginning-middle-end, and a focused purpose. A purpose that you as the author should be able to state clearly.
I recently wrote a post, Five Ways to Start a Chapter/Scene but now I will be looking at how to end a chapter/ scene.
There is a natural flow of a chapter, as a reader, you know this instinctively. You can feel when the chapter is about to be over. The chapter begins with an action or forward motion of some kind. Then the action or tension increases, then something is accomplished or resolved—and then something new begins.
But how do you end it in a way that’s compelling and irresistible to continue reading?
