Ray Made Me Do It

Ray Bradbury died yesterday.  I’ve been a Ray Bradbury fan about as long as I can remember so I was really sad about his passing.  As I read about his life on various websites, I saw again and again his fondness for short stories.  One article mentioned that he wrote one short story every week for the pleasure and discipline.  Another told of how he recommended a young author write one short a week, send it off to a publication of choice and continue doing every week  to help fend off the agony of rejection letters.  (One might be rejected, but there was always another out there to hope for.) I doubt I’ll write a short story a week, but I’ve been inspired by Ray Bradbury to take up the form.  Here goes nothing!
