Dark Word #020: Chuck Wendig

Don’t Be Boring: Philip talks to the NYT bestselling author of Wanderers

Chuck Wendig is the New York Times bestselling author of Wanderers, The Book of Accidents, Star Wars: Aftermath (plus tons of other Star Wars stuff), and more than two dozen other books for adults and young adults. A finalist for the Astounding Award and an alum of the Sundance Screenwriters Lab, he has also written comics and games, and for film and television. He’s known for his popular blog about writing, terribleminds, and books about writing such as Damn Fine Story.

Here he talks the nuts and bolts of writing, including whether it’s smart — or advantageous — to write “out of order,” as well as the “shape” of the prose on the page and why “all books are audiobooks.” Above all, he lives by the commandment “Don’t be boring.” Good advice!

Wendig lives in Bucks County, Pennsylvania, with his family.
