Cliff Hanger Player
- Feb 13, 2019
Tis' the question to be answered ;)
I feel the same way. Sure you can go on and on, but at the same time you got to cut it for that chapter, or there's no end. Cliffhangers are not always on purpose, just end up that way.Rather than liking or disliking them, I think they're kind of a necessity in the webnovel format? Like... Chapters are too short, I need to find an ending point every 2000 words... It's pretty hard to do that.
Sometimes the chapter has a nice ending point... Other times I just reached my quota for the chapter and the ending is still kinda far, so I'll end it as soon as the current scene ends... Which is often times in a cliff.
In a completed novel the situation changes though, cliffhangers between one volume and the next can be pretty frustrating as you'll need to wait months (or years) to see how things move, but in a webnovel filled with short chapters, they often times end up being a necessity because I need to end the chapter already.
