What are you thoughts about chapter titles?
I know several writers who use the chapter titles to help them advance the plot or to offer clues, but for me, I'm more interested in having the story itself to that. And each chapter should have it's own sort of story arc to a degree, and while it may not necessarily stand alone, it should offer some movement all its own that contributes to the overall story, and not just the advancement of the plot.
I know that using chapter heading breaks in shorter fiction has fallen out of vogue, but I like the way novellas and novelettes used to use them, where they didn't actually start on a new page, just kept the flow of the text rolling and added an extra line break before the chapter heading. I liked it because it gave an aesthetic that (to me anyway) was a happy medium between novel chapter breaks (full page break) and something else that signified a narrative break but without having to waste pages on a full break. It's the next step up from a fancy scene break symbol, in my mind, at least in a novella or novelette.
Just my opinions, as always. You're mileage may vary.
