    You would need to write a transitional paragraph that connects one chapter to another in a way that makes sense.  Not hard to do if the text just keeps going in the same place with the same characters.  Harder if the next chapter takes place in a different location or time, or with completely different characters. 
    When I write, I tend to make too many small chapters, then I have to go back and put them together.
    My new strategy is to not go on, until each chapter has at least 3,000 words.  Sounds hard, but it isn't.  Since you know the story you are telling, you tend to leave out lots of info that would be interesting to those who don't know the story.  Readers notice all the details.  It is what makes the story real.
