One of my favorite authors, Ray Bradbury passed away on June 5, at the transit of Venus. He was 91 years old.
If you are Ray Bradbuy fan, that will make sense to you.
If you don't know his books, you probably know the hit TV series based on his works - Star Trek.
Many I know are "Trekies" including myself.
I don't know too many facts about the man's personal life other than the only person he ever dated became his wife and they had four daughters. He won a Pulitzer. He wrote many, many books and seemed to be nice fellow.
I do know he said some inspiring things about writing.
Here are a few:
"If you don't like what your doing, then don't do it."
"Remember: Plot is more than footprints left in the snow after your characters have run by on their way to incredible destinations."
My favorite line of all time from Star Trek is said with two fingers, pointer and tall man, split in a "V" . . . "Live long and prosper."
