    Aspiring writers often ask established authors, “How did you do it?” The truth is that there is no single path to literary success. We sent a nonscientific survey to writers participating in the Los Angeles Times Festival of Books: Did they keep a diary as a child? Did they ever have a book rejected? Did they earn a living from writing? We tabulated more than 200 responses to make the board game below. Roll a die and see where the writing life takes you.

    – Game: How To Be A Writer | Los Angeles Times

    Becoming a successful writer seems like quite a daunting and even confusing life path to take. Fortunately, the LA Times has created an online, interactive game that depicts the pathway there!

    Illustrated by Paul Duginski and researched by Joy Press and Carolyn Kellogg, the milestones were formed based on answer writers at the Los Angeles Times Festival of Books gave to a survey. Ultimately, it seems that becoming a writer is trial and error rather than an exact science or route, but give it a shot and play the game!
