The celebrated author of Fahrenheit 451 and The Martian Chronicles offers inspiration and insight on finding one’s muse and channeling it onto the page.
Acclaimed writer of novels and short stories as well as screen— and stage plays, Ray Bradbury has established himself as one of the most legendary voices in science fiction and fantasy. In Zen in the Art of Writing, he shares how his unbridled passion for creating worlds made him a master of the craft.
Part memoir, part philosophical guide, the essays in this book teach the joy of writing. Rather than focusing on the mechanics of putting words together, Bradbury’s zen is found in the celebration of storytelling that drove him to write every day. Bringing together eleven essays and a series of poems written with his own unique style and fervor, Zen in the Art of Writing is a must read for all prospective writers and Bradbury fans.
“Bradbury lovers will find this a Bradbury feast.” —Kirkus Reviews

Quotes

    Sofia Voytovychhas quoted12 days ago
    WORK· RELAXATION· DON’T THINK, Once separated out. Now, all three together in a process. For if one works, one finally relaxes and stops thinking. True creation occurs then and only then.
    Sofia Voytovychhas quoted12 days ago
    Nothing fails then. All goes on. Work is done. If good, you learn from it. If bad, you learn even more. Work done and behind you is a lesson to be studied. There is no failure unless one stops. Not to work is to cease, tighten up, become nervous and therefore destructive of the creative process.
    Sofia Voytovychhas quoted12 days ago
    othing could be further from true creativity. Nothing could be more destructive than the two attitudes above.

    Why?

    Because both are a form of lying.
