PHONAR: Pointers

The wonderful Ray Bradbury gave a keynotes speech back in 2001, from which 12 little nuggets of advice have been chopped out to give us a bit of a kick in the right direction. Well, if we were writers.

  • Don’t start out writing novels.
  • You may love ‘em, but you can’t be ‘em.
  • Examine “quality” short stories. 
  • Stuff your head.
  • Get rid of friends who don’t believe in you. 
  • Live in the library.
  • Fall in love with movies. 
  • Write with joy. 
  • Don’t plan on making money.
  • List ten things you love, and ten things you hate.
  • Just type any old thing that comes into your head.
  • Remember, with writing, what you’re looking for is just one person to come up and tell you, “I love you for what you do.”
