The Toronto chapter of the Romance Writer’s of America is hosting an all day writing workshop with writer Chuck Wendig on Saturday May 10th in Toronto. – Click here for details –

Chuck who’s not normally associated with romance writing is a prolific and often foul-mouthed writer who gives great writing advice. His blog Terrible Minds gives you a good taste of what he’s about.

He’s written everything from gritty urban fantasies, futuristic Corn Punk tales, to YA novels about dino apocalypses. I’ve read Chuck’s Miriam Black series – Blackbirds, Mockingbird, and Cormorant and love his style. Chuck has also published some great writing advice books are likea two-by-four between the eyes (in a good way). Titles like “250 Things You Should Know About Writing”, “500 Ways to be a Better Writer” and “500 Ways to Tell a Better Story”. His advice will stick with you and I often find his blunt advice exactly what I need to hear to get my but in gear and stop whining about my writing.

Personally, I’ll be trying to move heaven and earth to attend this workshop. If nothing else, I’ll get to meet some other great writers and listen to Chuck swear all day.
