A blog about writing and all things story…

Thank You, Ray Bradbury –

I had to pass on this wonderful quote
From Ray Bradbury

“To sum it all up, if you want to
create you must be the most sublime
fool that God ever turned out and sent rambling.
You must write every single day of your life.

You must read dreadful dumb books and glorious books, and let them wrestle in beautiful fights inside your head, vulgar one moment, brilliant the next.

You must lurk in libraries and climb the stacks like ladders to sniff books like perfumes and wear books like hats upon your crazy heads.

I wish for you a wrestling match with your Creative Muse that will last a lifetime.

I wish craziness and foolishness and madness upon you.

May you live with hysteria, and out of it make fine stories—science fiction or otherwise.

Which finally means, may you be in love every single day for the next 20,000 days. And out of that love, remake a world. “
—Ray Bradbury

    An exceptional man, even though he was too paranoid of technology to learn how to drive.
