An evening with Ray Bradbury 2001


Science fiction author Ray Bradbury regales his audience with stories about his life and love of writing in “Telling the Truth,” the keynote address of The Sixth Annual Writer’s Symposium by the Sea, sponsored by Point Loma Nazarene University.

This is a video I watched over and over, it was so inspiring it spurred me on to write and write some more.
I hope you will enjoy it, it might be long to watch but worth every second of it!
What was your reaction?

  2. I recently read his book, Zen in the art of writing. It was great. I am a big fan of his too!

  3. I can’t tell you how much I got from watching this video. There were more than a handful of pennies dropping and I actually got them all! I got where he was coming from, what he was talking about, and his method of writing which I believe is very different from the pack. But most of all I got the joy of it. He’s absolutely right writing is a joy and shouldn’t be hard work. If it’s hard work you are in the wrong profession. And best of all writing is a wonderful surprise! I will watch this video often and follow his advice doggedly. Thanks again for sharing it. šŸ™‚

    • It gives me such pleasure to ” read ” your enthusiasm! That’s exactly the way I felt too, I normally don’t laugh that easy at humor on the internet but, here I was! He made the whole thing sound possible, he expresses himself so clearly, one does get where he is coming from. Thanks for sharing

  4. Thank you so much for sharing this! He came to my school when I was 11 and I never forgot him. He pretty much said the same things here. Still the best advice ever!
