The pen is mightier than the sword, and we’re proving that old saying in today’s BitLife guide on how to become a famous writer and author! If you’ve been contemplating picking up the pen and starting your career as a famous author, look no further – we’ve got everything you need to know right here in our guide, so let’s get started with our BitLife guide on how to become a famous writer and author!
Be the Whiz Kid
Starting out, you want to try to have a starting smarts stat of at least 70%. Any lower than that will make things a little harder, depending on how your early life goes. You may want to remake your character if your natural smarts is too low.
Aside from that, you don’t need to deviate much when living your early life! Just be a good kid and grow up loving your family and being nice to your friends and classmates. Elementary school should be a piece of cake, so just be good and keep your grades up.
When you get to high school, try to join one of the extracurricular clubs. The club you choose doesn’t necessarily have to be a sports related one, so don’t worry about your athleticism stat. Just pick something, as supposedly it ups your chance for getting the rarer jobs.
Becoming a Writer
Once you’re out of high school, it’s time to job hunt. Check the job listings every year and search for Writer – it’ll usually be towards the bottom of the list. The only per-requisite is that you’ve graduated high school, so you can skip going to college if you want. Be careful about getting other jobs if you want to put off becoming a writer for later, as some jobs will lock you out of the writing career!
Nail the interview – just don’t pick any of the obviously antagonistic answers – and you’ll officially be a writer. Now, at this point you can just work hard and let your books do the talking, but if you want to be extra safe now is a good time to open a bunch of social media accounts and be active on them, like making posts.

Every year make sure to go into your Job tab and go to your performance and select the work harder option. This will increase your performance but also put you at risk of health conditions – if you start to contract diseases like high-blood pressure, be sure to lower your hours and take some time to rest.
Pass enough years with good job performance and eventually you’ll become a famous writer! Now, you can do the fame-related options in the activities tab. You can finally publish your dream book, star in a commercial, pose for a photo shoot, and even go on a talk show. We recommend to do at least one of these activities every year to keep your fame level up.
