Quote of the Day (Ray Bradbury, on His ‘Theater of the Morning’)

“All kinds of thoughts and stories come to my mind. Many of those are metaphors. It is like all my characters come to me and talk to me. What I have to do then is wake up and start writing what those voices are suggesting to me. I let them write the story! I call it the theater of the morning.”—Ray Bradbury (1920-2012), quoted in Beatrice Cassina, “Ray Bradbury’s ‘Theater of the Morning,’” The Writer, January 2003
