I have actually learned more about writing professionally from Wil Wheaton than from any other individual source. He speaks on my level and he speaks honestly. He introduced me to POD (print on demand), and being my own best marketer. He’s led the way in new media and I’ve watched him traverse the new social media and show how to benefit from it, and is as close to a mentor as I could find in someone I’ve never met. I am full of respect for him, especially when he tells new writers how to be better writers and business people.
If you’re a writer and you’re not following him, you should.
