This review is from: 500 Ways To Be A Better Writer (Kindle Edition)
Things to know about this book before you buy it; there is a lot of swearing, the imagery is "out-there" (aka visceral and hilarious), the advise is some of the best in the business, it is non-judgemental (but brutally honest), and did I mention that there's a lot of swearing? If that bothers you I strongly suggest you find your writing advice elsewhere. Or if it does but you like being offended then buy away - you will not be disappointed.
I previously bought and read Wendig's 250 Things You Should Know About Writing, and both books work well independently. Together however they form a fantastic source for aspiring writers everywhere. A working pen-monkey himself, Wendig has been there, done it, killed it, stuffed it and sold it for gold, so he does know what he's talking about. I've also read his fictional works and can safely say that this man knows how to write.
Highly recommended for anyone interested in the craft of writing who isn't afraid to stick their head into the rabbit hole (with the aforementioned rabbit holding a machine gun to your face.) Brilliant stuff and I can't wait for more.
