    I've actually done this on the fly some with the adult stuff I've written. I've started out a chapter thinking I'm going to end it at one point, but then midway through I write a line and realize, ​Oh! That would make a much stronger ending/hook. So I end up splitting it in two. It's hard for me to imagine writing an entire book without having the chapter breaks in mind in advance! I've heard of a lot of other people doing it this way, though.

    would love if there were people still posting here. I have been writing a lot of different genres, probably due to the fact that I read different genres. The lower grade or mg story that I am nearly satisfied with combines a lot of the amazing things I watched my own children going through. I incorporated the childhood toys of my grandson to live the scenes. I am hoping to find someone to beta read it for me soon and give me some pointers.
