The Writer's Journey is a series of collectible videos found in Alan Wake's story in Alan Wake 2. Like the Writer in the Cabin videos from Alan Wake, they depict Alan's struggle to grow as a writer while trapped in the Dark Place.

There are nine Writer's Journey videos in total, one of which is exclusive to the New Game Plus mode The Final Draft. Each video can be found playing on a TV somewhere in the Dark Place. Watching all eight non-exclusive videos is required to unlock the achievement/trophy The Trail of the Writer.
