This is more of a discussion than an outright question to help me, really, as I have already written my novel the way I want it to be written. The question is this: do you, in any of your planned or finished novels, end each chapter with a cliffhanger? I know technically it's always a cliffhanger as you always want the reader to keep reading, but is every chapter you finish action-packed and "eventful"? Personally I think it relies on genre a little. For example, writing a thriller would be better, in general, if you made the end of every chapter exciting and enticing the reader to continue on. But in my novel, a journey across a post-apocalyptic land (which isn't a wasteland, by the way), every now and then, after the action-packed scenes have occurred, I want the characters to take a breather and in turn let the reader rest as well - I do this by having the two main characters camp for the night, but obviously we only see them camp a few times. What do you think? Does it rely on genre? Or is it simply what the writer prefers and how they want the book to be written? As I said, I'm just curious what everyone else thinks. Thanks.
