I love Bradbury and this book because it made me feel like writing is a task to enjoy and just follow your nose on, but I quit a bit early because I lost interest. It was the same gist over and over. So, only 2stars from me even though it lightened my load that I carry with writing and being a writer. ( )

Although I bought it hoping for advice as a writer, and there was some of that, mostly it is about the zen in the art of Ray Bradbury's writing. Even without knowing all the author's work well, it was an interesting story of how a writer does exactly what he wants, is true to his vision, and is lauded for it. ( )

The best description for this book in 10 words or less:
"Famous writer who financially struggled gives advice on writing."

This book is more of a memoir than a how-to novel. At the beginning of a few sections, there is advice about having passion in your writing and letting yourself have an easier time writing a novel.

It's really interesting how times have changed because the rent was only $30/month when Ray Bradbury was writing. He earned enough money through his writing to pay rent for a year and prepare for the new baby. It shows inflation at its finest.

It shows the struggles of being a writer while providing for his family, which puts life as a writer into perspective. How many people have tried to do the same thing, but fail? We only really hear about those who have succeeded, not those who have not.

This novel has humor in it similarly to On Writing by Stephen King.

I wish this book had more advice in it for writing. It was misleading when it was recommended as a writing how-to/memoir.

As Bradbury points out in the closing chapter of this book, some writers write in order to make money, and some others write in order to achieve recognition and accolades, but the best writers write as a response to their own inner calling. For these, writing is a surrender to an unquenchable passion, a tribute to a deep seated drive, an acknowledgement that writing is fulfillment, not simply a job or craft. Just as "a man who does what he loves for a living will never have to work a day in his life," so to the writer who writes for the pure joy of doing it, because he is driven to put pen to paper, because he has stories that simply must be told, and because to not write would be unthinkable.
Writing is not work but prayer. heaven is not a place reserved for the afterlife but the experience of telling a story well and finding pleasure in the mere telling of it. Words are not put on paper, they dance out of the mind and explode into the world.
few books convey such passion, such love of craft as does this collection of essays Bradbury published over several years. Bradbury's passion is undisguised and cannot be missed by the reader who glides through the pages. The reader knows that he is reading something special. This is not a tome on the craft of writing written by some professor; it is a love note about the passion Bradbury felt and wanted the world to share throughout his career. ( )

The book is a collection of essays by Bradbury on the topics of writing and creativity. It was a joy to read. Although there's a difference of 40 years between earliest and latest essay they seem wierdly cohesive put together. Ray was a wierd cookie and reading this was a fun way to spend an evening. ( )
