So, a new feature I'm trying out on my blog is to talk about my writing process each Wednesday. I've actually tried a few different new techniques lately, and I believe they are paying off.

This started while writing Love In the Time of the Hurricanes. I found I had to hand-write to get into the zone. But what really helped was writing on green paper.

For some reason, with the green I was able to focus and write more. And then some lovely individual on Tumblr showed how to change the background of a page in google docs. So I was able to type onto a green screen.

This process worked so well I've been using it for all the writing I've done since! I don't know why, but it's so much less stressful than staring at a blank white page and not knowing what to write.
