Mods, slap my wrists if this thread already exists here or belongs elsewhere. :)

Shamelessly stealing this idea from a different thread! Share the last line you wrote in your novel. Did you end a chapter, or leave on a cliffhanger so you can jump right back in when you start writing again? Did you leave off in the middle of a sentence? Post below!
Just cooperate with our advisors, and our advisors will cooperate with you.

“Today,” the reporter said, “we finally get a name for the girl.” She whipped her head at the stretcher. “She’s been positively identified by family as Claire Berkins.”

Just started a new novel. It's a mystery/thriller with some speculative elements.

“No need to say that twice,” I said, picking through our movie choices. ‘Deacon’s Weapon’ was still running through my mind. “Too bad we don’t have a real movie theater.” I grabbed a classic Hitchcock instead.
