Best Guest Speaker Ever!

Have you ever wished Ray Bradbury could be the guest speaker in your writing class? (I personally couldn't imagine anything better.) Well, you may not be able to get him into your classroom, but you can watch this hour-long video of his 2001 keynote address for the Six Annual Writer's Symposium by the Sea. He is humorous, direct, honest, and, as always, a complete inspiration. [via]
