8.13.21 - Collaborating with technology, CLOSAT to organize our writer thoughts, and a list of stuff to inspire you

Hi there, here's a rant for creatives!

I talk about my love and hesitation to collaborate with technology.

I wonder if the Storybot Writing Prompt App is any good, and I also talk about making poetry with Google Translate. During this, I discussed how I use the CLOSAT system (character, location, object, situation, action, theme) to catalog all of the ideas and details I gather from life and everything else. Also had a dream about repressing creativity.

This hard times article about a bag in a bag of bags.

I wrote a poem about this snail because I had to, inspired by this picture.

And here's the poem:

Macbeth at the Folger Theater, free on YouTube!

Check out this amazing list of bilingual children's books!

The Nowhere Inn, a mockumentary+weird thing starring St. Vincent and Carrie Brownstein, looks amazing!

Hope this helps, make art, much love!
