Writing an artist biography: Where to start


Writing a short author and/or artist biography is a pain, especially if you do not know where to start. Still, it is important in case if other people ever want to write about you. Ben Coleman shared a good place to start over at twitter:

This structure is easy enough to follow, but it made me realise I need more things to put on this.
