Writer Antony Johnston talks about his techniques for staying on top of projects and never missing a deadline.
Want to be a more organised writer? On the pod this week we have Antony Johnston, prolific and bestselling creator of comics, novels, podcasts and more. He created the graphic novel that was turned into the movie Atomic Blonde, has worked extensively on his own comics as well as Marvel books, video games including Dead Space and Shadow of Mordor and numerous crime thrillers. His latest book is The Organised Writer, a manual for professional writers based on Antony’s own experiences and techniques. If you’ve struggled to stick to deadlines and carve out time for your writing, Antony is someone you need to pay attention to.
The Organised Writer is published by Bloomsbury and is available from all good bookshops!
Meanwhile Vicki jumps on the pod to discuss the challenges of our school work in Covid-19 times and our continuing efforts to keep delivering workshops to young people.
This is part of our Early Career Writers’ Resources pack on Routine, with contributions from authors Vida Adamczewski, Monique Roffey, Megan Bradbury and more. Our Resources packs are generously supported by Arts Council England. Discover more here →
