Varian Johnson on the Art of the Chart


Bad Mutha Fluxa Varian Johnson has an article in the most recent Writer's Digest on incorporating doodles, charts, and other non-narrative and non-verbal elements to a novel without alienating the reader--something he does to great effect in his upcoming novel My Life as a Rhombus. Sounds like a useful article. Check it out.

Sara - Thanks for the cover love.

Andrew - Most of the Flux authors have gotten great comments concerning their covers. Have you ever thought about interviewing one of the graphics guys for the blog?
