9.10.21 - What The Matrix taught me about writing, links to inspire you, and Matrix Resurrections trailer The Writing Record

    • Self-Improvement

Hi there,

Here's a few things that jumpstarted my creativity this week:


The Matrix Resurrection trailer is here! A few thoughts about it as well as reminiscing about the original Matrix film, and how it informed the way I think about storytelling. Kickass!

*Quick Correction: I said William Goldman when I meant William GIBSON as the author of the massively influential Neuromancer. I am tired and I don't edit this podcast because I am working on my public speaking. Sorry about that folks.



This reddit thread about a courageous bird and its predator in a moment of truce. Something to think about.



I stumbled upon information about Japanese woodblock artist from the early 1900s, Goyō Hashiguchi. Check out his wonderful work! I was really taken by the color palette of each painting. It blows my mind how they used to create such amazing work. True artists to learn from!



Make art. Much love,

j
