Anthony Horowitz: Wisdom from #NY15SCBWI

"The end of a chapter should never be an excuse to stop reading."

- Anthony Horowitz, in his opening keynote

Look at the chapter breaks in your current WIP (work in progress.) Are you wrapping things up too nicely at the end of each chapter? Or are you making sure the end of your chapters are, if not cliffhangers, at least no excuse to stop reading?

Check out the Official SCBWI Conference blog post to learn more about what this author of over 40 books, including the Alex Rider teen spy series that has sold more than 19 million copies, shared in his passionate keynote.

"Stormbreaker," the first book in the the Alex Rider series
