Yep. Ray Bradbury died yesterday. He was 91. Bye Ray. You were spectacular. :(

Although FAHRENHEIT 451 was great, my favorite thing by him was "There Will Come Soft Rains." A wonderful short story.

A tweet:
Neil deGrasse Tyson ‏@neiltyson

"Creative imaginative visionary. A dreamer, like so many of the best science fiction authors. Ray Bradbury (1920-2012), R I P"
#UnbanTheMadman

"Some will sell their dreams for small desires
Or lose the race to rats
Get caught in ticking traps
And start to dream of somewhere
To relax their restless flight
Somewhere out of a memory of lighted streets on quiet nights..."

I was having a tough time getting my words out today -- I'm writing a first draft at the moment, and that's always a blow to the ego because, as Hemingway said, the first draft of anything is sh!t. Part of it was my depression at the death of Ray Bradbury.

Then I read the following anecdote: In 1932, when Ray was 12 years old, a carnival magician tapped Ray on the head with his sword and commanded, "Live forever!" Ray thought that this was the greatest idea he'd ever heard, and he immediately began writing science fiction.

I quickly got back to my writing after reading that.

So long, Ray, and thank you.

Tell me about it.

The fact that the first draft is sh1t has afflicted me with a chronic case of writer's block for some time now.

But, luckily, that block is beginning to dissipate--slowly, but surely, as I'm slowly but surely writing again.

I've loved everything that he's written. Amazing, brilliant really. He'll be remembered.
