Inkeeping with the style of the show, the journal is addressed to Elliot's "friend", the audience. Where Elliot's voice-over narration provides viewers with a limited view of his mindset and surroundings, Red Wheelbarrow contains additional characters, subplots, and clues.
The primary text is written in pencil, based on the real handwriting of Rami Malek and Christian Slater. Margin notes in red ink are written by "Hot Carla", providing an external perspective on Elliot's internal conflict.
