“You must stay drunk on writing so reality cannot destroy you.” Ray Bradbury
If you haven’t read Zen and the Art of Writing by Ray Bradbury, do so. It’s a rare treat and quite inspirational.
As a kid I was mesmerized by Bradbury’s magical writing. A master at drawing people into the fictive dream, he was my first inspiration for being a writer. That’s what I aspire to most in my writing–enveloping readers into my imaginary worlds. I think that’s what really attracts and holds an audience. Plus, he always uses beautiful language. I go to his books regularly when I want to call up the muse.
