    1. WHOOP POW Ray Bradbury s book on writing is BAMMO The man s enthusiasm leaps off the page, and if nothing else, that exuberance will carry you with a full head of steam straight from this book and into your own book Reading Zen in the Art of Writing is like having the best kind of encouraging friend pat you on the back while shouting YOU CAN DO IT Although some of his ideas and style is dated, there s still a great deal to be absorbed herein, after all, he is one of the best American writers of [...]

    2. There are a lot of reviews written about this short but excellent book written in the tradition of Stephen King s On Writing , or the other way around, given that Bradbury wrote his tome first Yet there is an energy in this book that is infectious and it points the finger to us as writers to say get serious about this art or get out His prescriptions for writing are no less demanding 1 Write one short story a week for 5 years Perhaps after this rigour, some good stuff might come out Bradbury wro [...]

    3. Short version This is the best writing book I have ever read Long version This isn t going to be a very eloquent review Good books on writing are difficult to find For several of my classes, professors have assigned books about writing techniques, and all of them have been terrible Some of them have graphs, others have ways of mapping out character development, but generally these books try to break writing down to its skeletal form and make a biology lesson of it It ends up being overly technic [...]

    4. Nothing particularly new is told but Ray writes with such a passion and gusto that the book becomes a joy to read References to stories and novels that I have not read abound and hence it was difficult to follow the train of thought The poems at the end were a real bonus.

    5. If you re looking for the book that finally teaches you everything you ever wanted to know about writing the book that will finally give you the key to the famous author s success this one isn t for you On one hand, no such book exists On the other, Ray Bradbury s Zen and the Art of Writing is less about the craft and mechanics of writing than one man s passion and zeal for good old fashioned fun stories Bradbury has been criticized for being overly sentimental and rightfully so At times this bo [...]

    6. Do I want to try to write like Ray Bradbury No, I don t think so But I once sat in that middle school English class listening to a cassette tape with the gravelly voice narration of The Veldt and thought the shudder in my spine was some holy spirit saying I had found the apex of the literary arts And anyway I m desperate and will take advice anywhere.Here s a list of his most compelling pointers 1 Write every day 2 Make a list of nouns that get at you in some way These will be the centers of the [...]

    7. Every morning I jump out of bed and step on a land mine The land mine is me After the explosion, I spend the rest of the day putting the pieces back together Now, it s your turn Jump I m not sure what prompted me to read this book There s a part of me that s always wanted to write, but I ve lacked the self discipline Of course, I also lack self confidence Unlike most writers, I have never felt the need to write every day At least, I didn t think I did I remember being asked to write a story in s [...]

    8. No one writes quite like Ray Bradbury Perhaps that s an understatement, but as I was reading Zen in the Art of Writing, I was again reminded of his brilliance He has impeccable control of the English language But at the same time, his sentences are playful and colorful His thinking is philosophical and, at the same time lighthearted But ideas lie everywhere, like apples fallen and melting in the grass for lack of wayfaring strangers with an eye and a tongue for beauty, whether absurd, horrific, [...]

    10. O que os escritores podem aprender com lagartos e p ssaros Rapidez, certamente Quanto mais r pido voc se expressar, quanto mais prontamente escrever, mais honesto ser Na hesita o est o pensamento Na posterga o surge o esfor o por um estilo, em vez do mergulho na verdade, que o nico estilo que vale uma queda mortal ou uma ca ada ao tigre Corra, pare, ou a coisa no topo da escada, ou novos fantasmas de mentes antigas

    11. I spent my college years reading Ray Bradbury, but probably haven t read anything of his since My loss Reading Bradbury again, in this case his writing memoir, Zen in the Art of Writing, reminds me both of that time and also gives me a peak at his views on creativity and his writing process.What s his process He sums it up as WORK That s the first one RELAXATION That s the second Followed by two final ones DON T THINK p 103 Bradbury worked hard, day in and day out He is credited with 27 novels a [...]

    12. Read this while sitting in the basement of the Camden, NJ courthouse, wearing my Juror badge, and trying not to hear CNN s droningly repetitive news coverage although, have you seen the image of all the dead birds in Arkansas Jesus, the plagues have begun and I picked it because it was pocket sized and figured to be an easy read Which it was Not to say it was particularly fulfilling or interesting There are a handful of pages in here that have legitimate, useful writing advice, although mostly f [...]
