Writing with Sensory Processing Disorder

                Having Sensory Processing Disorder can be disruptive but it can also be a superpower.  To keep my senses from becoming distractions, I engage them in the writing process.  For each chapter, I burn the candle I associate with the character who is lending me their point-of-view.  To start each writing session I listen to the character’s song (sometimes on repeat) to engage my sense of hearing.  Below are the candle scents and songs for the Strawberry shifters whose stories are completed to date:
