You don't have to post chaptered fics here. You can post one shots here too (basically a story not meant to be with chapters). Lately in other places I write one shots that range from 200 to over 5,000 words. If you still want to do a longer piece, I tend to end my chapters during a dramatic point (sometimes cliffhangers, mostly not) or after. I would also end a chapter if I know the next part will take place at a different time (hours, days, weeks. months later). Otherwise you can always still write your story and worry about how to break it into parts later. Wish you luck!

My high school English classes I read a range of books as I was in both honors and AP classes. I'm counting books I read during the summer too, lol.
