"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!"  Zest. Gusto. Curiosity. These are the qualities  every writer must have, as well as a spirit... show more
"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!"  Zest. Gusto. Curiosity. These are the qualities  every writer must have, as well as a spirit of  adventure. In this exuberant book, the incomparable  Ray Bradbury shares the wisdom, experience, and  excitement of a lifetime of writing. Here are  practical tips on the art of writing from a master of  the craft-everything from finding original ideas to  developing your own voice and style-as well as the  inside story of Bradbury's own remarkable career  as a prolific author of novels, stories, poems,  films, and plays. Zen In The Art Of  Writing is more than just a how-to manual for the  would-be writer: it is a celebration of the act of  writing itself that will delight, impassion, and  inspire the writer in you. In it, Bradbury  encourages us to follow the unique path of our instincts  and enthusiasms to the place where our inner genius  dwells, and he shows that success as a writer  depends on how well you know one subject: your own  life.

3.0 Zen in the Art of Writing: Releasing the Creative Genius Within You
Largely a collection of essays written by Bradbury over the course of his career, this is an interesting look into the life of one of the century's best-known sci-fi writers, though writers looking for specific writing instruction might want to look elsewhere. Like Anne Lamott's "Bird by Bird," this...

3.0 Zen in the Art of Writing: Releasing the Creative Genius Within You
everyone on goodreads is so nice. it's like lowering yourself into an ancient volcanic sinkhole on bali filled with warm, soothing water. tiny bubbles are rising up out of the sinkhole floor, and the sensation resembles... well, like a gigantic tongue tickling you. you're completely naked. all aroun...

5.0 Zen in the Art of Writing: Releasing the Creative Genius Within You
A very good and insightful book, both into the mind of a masterful craftsman as well as his vision/approach to writing. The book reads very easily and showed me a lot of good things, several of which I am already doing. :-)
