Default breaks within chapters


If I have breaks within a chapter ... for example, I want to shift for a moment to another scene that would only take up one paragraph, and so would not be appropriate for an entire chapter .... how do I mark it? For example, with centered three asterisks ***? Or how?

Thanks, wrc. I will use that or a close variation of it. Is that for a print book or an ebook? Or both?
