Writing about digital and interactive media
© 2020 selection and editorial matter, Lisa Patti; individual chapters, the contributors. Digital and interactive media require rethinking the research and analysis process. These new forms open up disruptions in user access and modifications. They transition from linearity to modularity in navigable databases across transmedia platforms. This chapter guides writers through a process of how to think and write about these new forms. It suggests architecture, navigation, interface, automation, design, data, structures, and patterns as key analytical modes. It offers a writing system: use the 90/10 workflow, immerse deeply, handwrite notes, specify, research context and compare, interpret significance, make connections, outline by word count, read out loud, revise, and copyedit.
