I love tech-y things. I love my iPhone, adore my iPad, and absolutely love my Macbook. Can you tell that I’m an iPerson? I’ve been one since I was a kid, when my dad bought my brother and sisters a few shares of stock in this new company called “Apple”. Haha, isn’t that a clever name?
Anyways. Aside from my heavy reliance on Scrivener, I’d actually say the biggest tech thing I use as a writer is Google. I write early in the morning, when there are no people up to text or call, no stores or libraries open to look for resources. So for me, Google is my go-to resource to keep me writing forward. Some things I’ve Googled over the past year:
What is a common argument people have about Star Wars
Lab Protocols and procedures
Chromosomes and inheritance
Diners in Malibu
What are the genetics behind green eyes
And for the book I’m working on right now:
Do you need a passport to go to Canada/Mexico?
How can you tell a driver’s license is fake?
FAA news conferences on plane crashes
FAA rules and regulations regarding ticketed passengers
Berkeley California map
Orphanages and group homes in the United States
I never, ever rely on Google by itself. Anyone can put anything on the internet and say it’s true! But it’s a good starting place for me to get the information I need so I can keep writing. I usually highlight it to remind me to check it with an expert when the rest of the world wakes up.
The Ones We Choose is available in all stores!
