The celebrated author of Fahrenheit 451 and The Martian Chronicles offers inspiration and insight on finding one's muse and channeling it onto the page.   Acclaimed writer of novels and short stories as well as screen- and stage plays, Ray Bradbury has established himself as one of the most legendary voices in science fiction and fantasy. In Zen in the Art of Writing, he shares how his unbridled passion for creating worlds made him a master of the craft.   Part memoir, part philosophical guide, the essays in this book teach the joy of writing. Rather than focusing on the mechanics of putting words together, Bradbury's zen is found in the celebration of storytelling that drove him to write every day. Bringing together eleven essays and a series of poems written with his own unique style and fervor, Zen in the Art of Writing is a must read for all prospective writers and Bradbury fans.   "Bradbury lovers will find this a Bradbury feast." --Kirkus Reviews… (mer)

Interesting set of essays with the best being the titular piece. ( )

Brilliant advice on drawing on the subconscious to create art. ( )
  JoniMFisher | Jan 5, 2023 |
In this collection of essays, Ray Bradbury provides advice for writers and comments on his prolific career. He encourages writers to look to unusual places for inspiration. Read poetry. Visit art galleries or museums. Keep lists and revisit them regularly, even years later. Follow your passion. Do not write for reasons of “making it big” or appealing to current fads or capturing a commercial market. Write daily. Write one story per week and keep at it. He wrote 1,000 words per day every day. Written in his lyrical style, Bradbury’s enthusiasm for writing leaps off the page. It is more inspirational than instructional. Definitely worthwhile for those who enjoy reading about writing. ( )

This book by Ray Bradbury is fabulous.

You won't find the traditional lessons on writing in the book. The essays point you toward an approach to writing. If you use the lessons well, your writing will improve, and you will discover much joy in the process.

My advice is this: read the book, and imbibe the lessons. But keep another book by your side, on the technical aspects of writing.

This book will give you much joy, and you will be able to apply the lessons in the book to other, creative, aspects of your life. ( )

This short collection of essays shows a first-published date of Nov 1973, but each essay was individually published in a variety of magazines or journals, ranging from 1961 through 1986.

I am a fan of Ray Bradbury’s and I initially found it interesting to read about where his story ideas came from. I particularly liked the image of a young (child? teen?) Bradbury keeping a notebook or journal where he jotted random words that struck his fancy, only to have those words percolate in his subconscious mind for years until Voila! a story idea was born. The word might be “baby” or “skeleton” or “carnival” or “dandelion.”

More than anything I get the impression that he was open to anything. He spent his life observing and absorbing as much as possible to fuel his creative engine. And while he is probably best known as a writer of science fiction, he penned love stories and even wrote the screenplay for Moby Dick (yes, the movie starring Gregory Peck as Ahab).

All that being said, and despite my liking his works of fiction, I found this collection dissatisfying as a whole. The fact that the collected essays spanned a couple of decades of his thoughts / writings probably didn’t help. And unlike Stephen King’s memoir, On Writing, this work did nothing to improve my own “reading” skill. ( )
