How A Food Blog Landed A Movie Deal
Lessons And Inspiration for Aspiring Writers
Back in 2002, Julie Powell, an aspiring writer with a day job
she disliked, decided to start a blog in her spare time.
The posts would chronicle for a year her daily attempt
to prepare a recipe from Julie Child’s iconic
cookbook on the art of French cuisine.
Powell’s project reportedly irritated French chef Child but landed
the aspiring writer a book and movie deal. And her blog is regarded
as the first blog to inspire a Hollywood movie…Julie/Julia
Today Pinterest and Instagram would likely be the platforms used.
Following in Powell’s footsteps, what book would you choose?
What activity or task would you want to learn about and document/
Would you post on Pinterest, Instagram, blog posts,
private journal for a year?
