Jimmy Chen created this fun venn diagram for HTMLGiant, saying:
I think of all writing being from the head (pros: cerebral, conceptual; cons: didactic, dry), the mouth (pros: language, poetics; cons: empty banter, pure form), and the heart (pros: empathic, intimate; cons: sentimental, emotional) . My favorite writers, those in the white dashed center, are able to write from all three places.
[And yes, he apologizes for the lack of contemporary and women writers.]
So, do you agree with his assessment of these authors, or how he’s divided them by temperament? If you had to put yourself on this diagram, where would you fall? Let us know in the comments section below.
