The Life of A Writer

The Life of a Writer

Writing Journal Worksheet – The Life of A Writer (PDF)

Imitating the way a writer writes is a delightfully private way of learning from them. So is stealing. But sometimes learning about the life of a writer you admire can also help you navigate some of the challenges of your chosen profession.

Or how about studying a writer you don’t admire?

Use the sidebar to:

  1. List your favourite and least favourite authors.
  2. List authors whose work you like, but whose personal life is problematic or controversial.
  3. List the author memoirs, biographies or autobiographies you’ve read. You can find some of my favourites in my creative writing reading list.
  4. List author interviews and documentaries you’ve watched or listened to.
  5. List the authors you follow on social media, along with the platforms you follow them on. Note down the title or the first sentence of that last thing they shared on the internet.
  6. List ideas from authors that you might like to emulate.
