A great clip from a lecture by Kurt Vonnegut on the ‘simple shapes of stories!

If you enjoyed the above clip here is another lecture Vonnegut gave at Albion Collage where he received a honorary doctorate in 2002. The lecture’s title is “How to Get Job Like Mine”.

This tape was donated to the Art Science Research by mr. Vonnegut. In this first section amongst other things just as not to use semi colons; he talks about the importance and meaningfulness of creativity.
