I can attest that HB does indeed write great chapter titles. So does @The Bluestocking! I think they work particularly well in books that have a bit of humor to them, like Rick Riordan's Percy Jackson series. (He actually starts each chapter of his Trials of Apollo series with a haiku, which is next-level chapter title work!)I name them
Of course there is also Song of Ice and Fire series, where the chapter titles are the POV character’s name for that chapter.
I thought another neat way of doing it.
For me, It honestly depends on the project and if I'm motivated enough to label them. But when I am motivated, labeling can offer the reader a curious hint into the chapter, making them want to continue reading the novel.Do you name your chapters or just number them or do a combination of both? For example, would you choose, "The Great Escape," "Chapter 1," or "Chapter 1 - The Great Escape"? Could you explain why you prefer one over the others
