Everest by Fog: A Talk by Ray Bradbury

Posted on Mar 24 2014 - 4:04pm by Luke Everest

Ray BradburyThis is the best smegging talk about Creative Writing I’ve ever seen. Ray Bradbury wrote with such a passion and joy that he’s an exemplar to us all if only for his lifestyle. He also firmly believed that his passion for the art is what made his quality.

This video is not only an inspiration, but a plethora of homework from one of the greatest, in my opinion, writers in history. I will do exactly what he says:

Read one short story every day.

Read one poem every day.

Read one essay every day.

Sounds like fun to me. If it didn’t sound like fun, I probably wouldn’t want to write all three of them.

A quick post, this one, but who am I to yap when you’ve got Ray Bradbury to listen to? I hope you enjoy.


Thank you Ray Bradbury for being far and away my greatest influence.  If others ever say my work is reminiscent of yours, I will probably weep tears of joy.



About the Author

Aspirant authors are everywhere. How many make it happen? Not many, but it's happening for me. Here I'll share my journey, everything I learn along this arduous hike for self-discovery up Mount Everest. A little about me: managing to impress them with gusto, I was fortunate to apprentice under Scott Bradfield and Paul McAuley. I'm presently represented by the same agent who represented Anthony Burgess. Dreaming is a fight wherever dreams come true. Bring it on.
