Ray Bradbury Speaks About Writing

Hello Fellow Writers!

Yesterday, instead of writing, I ripped the sink out of my bathroom (ah, the joys of a DIY bathroom renovation). I did, however, review a couple of notes my writing teacher, Vinnie Daquino, made about my novel "The Movie Star's Very Personal Assistant." All in all it seems like the people in my class are enjoying my book, which makes me very happy - and slightly less afraid to send it out into the world. Just not yet.

Today I wanted to share with you writing advice from the great Ray Bradbury. He has published about 500 novels, short stories and poems, so he knows what he is talking about.



Usually I do love writing - it's why I do it so much. I especially love the feeling of creating something new - perhaps that's why I have a drawer filled with the first 30 to 50 pages of a novel, and then I let it go and start something new. At least I have two completed novels under my belt (even if one of them, a young adult horror novel entitled "Ambition" is truly awful).

And during the month of November, just 24 days from now, I will write "Snowed In With a Millionaire." And I will blog about it.

But for today... today I will work on the plot of "Snowed In" and try not to obsess to much about my bathroom renovations.

Wish me luck, and good luck to you too!

Yours Truly,
Shoshanna Evers
