Bradbury: Zen in the Art of Writing

Zen in the Art of Writing

In honor of Ray Bradbury’s 91st birthday (!) last week, I have to recommend his excellent book, ZEN IN THE ART OF WRITING: Essays on Creativity. I know it’s an oldie, but I just got around to reading it. It was fun, and motivating. Very interesting to hear about how so many “classic” stories of his became ‘classic” books like, The Martian Chronicles, Dandelion Wine, The Illustrated Man, Fahrenheit 451, and Something Wicked This Way Comes. (And “Wicked” has been in the news lately for a new graphic novel version that is coming out.)

Happy Birthday, Ray! (And do read ZEN…it’s wonderful!)
