My latest article over at Black Gate is an appreciation of Chinese director Zhang Yimou’s amazing “wuxia” trilogy–a trio of kung fu films that revolutionize the genre and re-invent the martial arts movie in the same way that Ang Lee’s CROUCHING TIGER, HIDDEN DRAGON did at the turn of the millennium.

Yimou is one of my all-time favorite directors, and his movies are masterworks of visually kinetic storytelling.

SFFWRTCHT: What’s the best writing advice you have to offer new writers who ask?

John R. Fultz: Just keep writing. If you’re really a writer, there’s nothing else you can do. Write what you believe in…conquer your own mountains…write the best stories you can and get them out there where people can dig your mojo. Build a suit of armor from your accumulated rejection slips and wear it into battle. Kill that dragon.
