I’m not featured on the cover of the new issue of Danny Fingeroth’s Write Now! — they put Christian Bale’s picture on it instead. Probably because they wanted people to buy copies. But you will find something by me tucked away inside, lurking amidst articles by Denny O’Neil, Max Allan Collins, Brian Michael Bendis, and other luminaries. My piece talks about writing non-fiction comics, of course, and it includes a flowchart, because that’s how I think about writing sometimes.
(No kidding — I finally broke through a mental logjam regarding the plot of an upcoming book when I started approaching it as computer code. Jason Shiga would be proud.)
Updated, Nov. 14: Because of a production mixup, in the printed article it appears as if neither I nor the Write Now! editors did the appropriate research on how to spell “research.” The irony isn’t lost on us, we regret the error, and assure you that we do know how to use a dikshunairy. Here’s the flowchart, as we intended it to appear.
