Screenwriter, producer, and director Joss Whedon (The Avengers) talked about his writing process in April 2012.
Question: Hi Joss. Do you use techniques to boost your creativity for writing? Do you for instance write better when you meditate, exercise, take alcohol, etc.?
IAMAJossWhedon: I like movie scores. They really help put me in the moment, no matter where I am. Avengers owes a lot to Rachel Portman's Never Let Me Go and Hart's War . . . And I do like a reward for writing — cup of tea, glass of wine, meth-fueled crime spree . . . but when a story has me, I don't need anything but a pen.
