Chuck Wendig is one of those unabashedly blunt, slightly vulgar, and totally confident (at least from the outside looking in!) that makes me sit up and pay attention to what he says. His blog is full of hands-on, super useful advice that is immediately applicable. And it's hilarious, which feels like perfectly whipped icing on an already delicious cake.
He's not a guy that's going to blow rainbows up your booty, or tell you everything is going to be just dandy if you "just believe." No, Wendig tells it how it is in this wonderful, wacky profession called writing:
Now, once you accept that fact and get over it, Wendig will help you improve not only your craft, but your marketing and most importantly, your attitude. You have to be willing to put yourself out there (like he does) and be confident that if your stuff is any good, you WILL get published and recognized.
His combination of wit, sometimes raunchy humor, and expertise combine to make a surprisingly beautiful blog, both aesthetically and information-ally. Go get inspired, and make sure to check out the rest of his site too. All kinds of great resources for any writer.
