Free thought, honest opinions, good ideas written on papers, which seem like an easy and lofty goal. I do not see…

Ok, I am reading this PDF file, about some book Ray Bradbury wrote on how to travel, I am digging though this box called a folder in my computer looking for books to read, when I came across this, wonderful how people can explain things I am thinking better than me… they seem to know my thoughts.

I tell people to just type your thoughts and blog away, I know they are afraid that someone will read what they are thinking, so they write what they think the person wants, and lost themselves on the path.

Ray Says,

- Run fast, stand still. This, the lesson from lizards. For all writers. Observe almost any survival creature, you see the same. Jump, run, freeze. - …

- What can we writers learn from lizards, lift from birds? In
quickness is truth. The faster you blurt, the more swiftly you
write, the more honest you are. In hesitation is thought. In delay
comes the effort for a style, instead of leaping upon truth which is
the only style worth deadfalling or tiger-trapping. -

Thanks Ray, you reading my mind, Andy in Benin, West Africa.

RAY BRADBURY:
- Bradbury, Ray (Douglas) (1920- ), American writer of science fiction, best known for his novels and collections of short stories. He often blends science fiction with social criticism and writes about the destructive tendency in humans to use technology at the expense of morality. His Fahrenheit 451 (1953) is the portrait of an autocratic society in which the government provides all information to its citizens via television and all books are banned and burned.

Born in Waukegan, Illinois, Bradbury was an imaginative child prone to nightmares and frightening fantasies, which he later drew on for his writing. He began writing at least four hours a day when he was 12 years old. He sold his first story in 1941 and became a full-time writer in 1943. The Martian Chronicles (1950), a novel about people colonizing Mars, is one of his best-known works. Bradbury has also written poetry and scripts for plays and films. Bradbury’s early works include The Illustrated Man (1951), Dandelion Wine (1957), and Something Wicked This Way Comes (1962). His later works include Long After Midnight (1977), Death Is a Lonely Business (1985), and A Graveyard for Lunatics (1990). The short-story collections Quicker Than the Eye (1996) and Driving Blind (1997) move away from science fiction in style and subject matter - (2)
