Over at HTMLGiant, Jimmy Chen has created a great infographic separating some of his favorite writers into three categories, with, of course, copious amount of overlap. He writes, “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).” Perhaps needless to say, highest honors (in Chen’s head and ours) go to those authors who can write from all three centers equally well or even concurrently. Do you agree with his distinctions and choices? Let us know in the comments, or head over to HTMLGiant and join the discussion there.
