Now Available: 30 Days In The Word Mines


Hey, look.

A new writing book.

All original.

Nothing taken from the blog.

From the book description:

30 Days In The Word Mines takes you on a month-long journey of writing, offering pages filled with practical writing tips, motivational throat-punches, and ruminations on the craft of writing and art of storytelling. Whether you’re running with National Novel Writing Month or just want to hunker down and write to see just how far you can get, this book will help you every step of the way with a new tip, trick or thought every day of the month-long journey. From the mad mind behind terribleminds comes an original companion book to help you navigate the maze of writing every day. Good luck, and art harder.

Wanna check it out? It’s $2.99 at:



Or buy direct from Payhip.

Buy 30 Days In The Word Mines!

Or — or! — I’m offering it as part of my Gonzo Big Writing Bundle.

Twenty bucks gets you (now) eight books.

Buy Gonzo Bundle!

And that’s the deal.

Hope you check it out — this one’s a bit of an experiment for me, given that it’s a little more focused in terms of content, and again, is not material that originated at the blog. (The exception is the appendix, which features my Big 350 zero-fuckery writing plan.)

  1. Getting an error on the bundled version of the 30 day book, says “file type is not in Mobi or PDF. The others seem to be working fine.

  2. This was an insta-buy for me! Thanks Chuck for all the scribblings! Your posts based around “writers write” and “finish your shit” are the motivation I needed to start writing again after so long! You gave me the kick needed ti get up off my ass (not literally) and write, instead of aspiring all this time. Still have those posts clipped to Evernote in case I need more asskicking!

    • Well, the hope is that folks can find it useful on this month’s NaNo journey. The book isn’t about prep — it’s meant to go with you day after day in the word mines.

  3. I was worried about that, but it’s written diary-like so I am going to actually use it as my NaNo prep each day before I write. Chuck’s writing is paced so quickly that I think it will be a good jumpstart to the writing day.

  4. Hey Chuck is this going to be available in the Australian Amazon because it’s not coming up and the U.S. site no longer will allow you to buy from their kindle store…thanks

  5. Hello. Is there another way to open the zipped books in the collection other than having to purchase WinZip? Thx.
