Writing Tip of the Day: Make sure that when deciding where to end chapters that you give it some suspense. You hear about some books which are "page turners", and much of that has to do with giving your readers a good reason to turn to the next page. If you end your chapter with your character's going to sleep or with nothing that leaves the reader with a question of what is going to happen next, your readers may very well stop turning your pages. Here some good ways to end:

  • End when a big decision has been made. 
  • End when some drastic action has been taken. 
  • End when something unexpected happens.

  1. Slogged my way to 22,904. Some days are a real battle.

    I liked today's tip. Ending chapters on "turning pages" is something I have to pay particular attention to. Your suggestions will come in handy!

    Thanks Robin. Keep pressing forward! And take a second to pat yourself on the back. You're doing really well.
