My buddy Bob posted this video of one of my favorite all-time authors, Ray Bradbury. I love what he’s got to say here about persistence. On top of that, it made me laugh (in a good-natured way) to see him in shorts and a long sleeve shirt, drinking many Coors and writing. What an interesting character he was! The world lost someone special when he died.

PART-TIME NOVEL

This is a short piece from YouTube about the late great Ray Bradbury. He talks about his passion for writing, how he wrote a short story a week, and slowly became a published author.

He discusses the turning point in his career – a short story titled The Lake which is based on a true story. At the end of the piece he says it took him ten years to write something beautiful. I realize now, at times, how impatient we are with our inner authors and how passion and persistence pays off.

Rest in peace Mr. Bradbury and thank you.

Cheers,

Bob
