Zen in the Art of Writing - Ray Bradbury This book should be read twice a year, once every six months, at the very least, to remind oneself of the way one should approach writing and not get lost in one's own labyrinths of dark and convoluted thoughts. I, for once, saw the sunshine in writing after a long long time.

Ray Bradbury keeps wandering off frequently into his various long-winded memory lanes, so it's more of a collection of motley memoirs than a cohesive piece about writing. But the theme remains consistent, the writing is full of pace, and the zest and gusto(the two words he seems quite in love with) with which he deals with the whole thing makes up the seemingly haphazard manner of explaining his thoughts and viewpoints.
