About the Author

Chuck Wendig is a novelist, a screenwriter, and a freelance penmonkey.
He has contributed over two million words to the roleplaying game industry, and was the developer of the popular Hunter: The Vigil game line (White Wolf Game Studios / CCP).

He, along with writing partner Lance Weiler, is a fellow of the Sundance Film Festival Screenwriter's Lab (2010). Their short film, Pandemic, will show at the Sundance Film Festival 2011, and their feature film HiM is in development with producer Ted Hope.

Chuck's novel Double Dead will be out in November, 2011.

He's written too much. He should probably stop. Give him a wide berth, as he might be drunk and untrustworthy. He currently lives in the wilds of Pennsyltucky with a wonderful wife and two very stupid dogs. He is represented by Stacia Decker of the Donald Maass Literary Agency.

You can find him at his website,, where he acts as dispenser of dubious writing advice and so-called "publishing wisdom."

I've read the lion share of this book as posts on Chuck's blog, but picked up the nook version anyway as those posts are just that good. Chuck has added some additional notes and comments at the end of each section, updating them and or adding anecdotes. If you have any interest in writing for a portion of your living or want to see in to the worm ridden mind of someone who does already, you REALLY want to drop an Abe on this. You are warned, here there be profanity. I am sure you are strong enough to take it though. What you may have a problem with is the carnival barker like song Wendig sings. No that is too kind. More accurately, he is the heroin addict warning you not to try the schmack and then in the next breath shoots up right in front of you and drifts off into the bliss.

CONFESSIONS OF A FREELANCE PENMONKEY is a collection of hilarious and profane blog posts from writer Chuck Wendig, covering everything from first drafts to copy edits. This collection reads like pure id sometimes, but if you can keep up with Wendig's manic stream-of-consciousness, you will learn a lot while being entertained as h**l. Wendig has turned profanity into an art form, so don't read this if you're easily shocked. But then again, if you can't handle the mere mention of a cock waffle, you probably aren't much of a writer anyway.
