Bradbury’s Daily Duties

Ray Bradbury suggests that writers read one short story, one essay, and one poem a day.  I am going to give this a go.

I am going to give this a go and see how it treats me.

To his list, however, I am adding an article about a current event.

To Find the Pieces

To find the pieces, I simply typed 100 of the best short stories and clicked the first link.  Then, I clicked the first stories on the list.

I did the same for essays and poems.

For articles, I am reading from The Economist and clicking on their top story.

Today I’ve Read

Short Story – The Story of an Hour

Essay – Attitude

Poem – Dream within a Dream

Article – Melania Trump’s Excruciating Blunder

Barbara Burgess is a writer which is made apparent by the text in this box and the box above. She is best known for being a multi-genre/multi-writing voice author who throws caution to the wind when describing her writing career - "Oh, I write children's books, holiday romance, and sci-fi. Why? What do you do? Just one thing?" In addition to being a writer of all the things, she is the founder of Pilgrim Fowl Press and a writing facilitator bringing permission to write to the masses via Skillshare and Udemy. The only social media she frequents is Instagram (@hellothisisbarbara). Her desert island movie is Stargate (the original with James Spader), and she has been taking daily mug shots of her morning coffee since before Instagram was even a thing.
