Last Week’s WW: Social (media) etiquette
Yesterday, my fella and I were out writing, and he asked me: “How do you end a chapter?”
This got me thinking. I’ve been learning about and focusing on tension lately. I think that a good way to end a chapter is by ending it with tension. You could do this a number of ways. You could end it with a big cliff hanger. Or you could go smaller, more subtle. However you do it, that last paragraph, especially that last line should intrigue the reader. There should be something to it that either screams or hints that there’s more to come. It has to make them wonder. It has to make them need to know what happens next.
That’s my opinion on how to end a chapter.

Great advice, Angela. I think it can also be worthwhile to end a chapter with an unanswered question lingering in the air, especially if you can keep it unanswered for a stretch.
A motivating discussion is definitely worth comment.
I think that you should publish more on this subject, it may not be
a taboo matter but usually folks don’t discuss such subjects.
To the next! Best wishes!!
