The well-known author Ray Bradbury shares his views on the joy of writing.
Here are eleven exuberant essays on the pleasures of writing from an author who enjoys his craft and tells you why and how. Bradbury shares his wisdom and enthusiasm for writing as he examines a lifetime of creating and composing scores of stories, novels (Fahrenheit 451, Martian Chronicles, Something Wicked This Way Comes), plays, poems, films (screenplays for Moby Dick, It Came from Outer Space), television programmes, and musicals.
Refreshingly direct, each essay shares a single compelling theme: writing is a celebration, not a chore. Unlike so many books on writing, this one does not belabor the technical or become obsessed woth the how-to-aspects of the craft. What Bradbury does bring to every discussion of writing is the fever, the ardour, the delight that he has discovered and which can be yours.
