We ADHDers are not very good at: making choices, setting priorities, sticking with a task, saying no to certain wants.
I’m currently “ writing” five books: a novel and an ADHD book, writing both at the same time; a book on gun violence, currently stalled; a book on personal health, only in outline form for now; and a book on marriage, just in the back of my mind.
Currently, the novel has captured me. I’m a third of the way through on the tenth draft. I expect at least four more drafts, and wouldn’t be surprised by eight more.
I’m currently on pause on the ADHD book and I’d like to get moving again. I just finished the tenth draft and hoped there would only be one more, but I see too many similar tips, more or less duplicates, and I need to replace some of them. Repetition is okay, as that’s how we learn, but there’s too much. I’m not sure how to go about finding and replacing the duplicates; none of the approaches I can think of seem very efficient nor pleasant, and therefore I’m procrastinating and just working on the novel.
I need a strategy. I hereby commit to starting work on the duplicates tomorrow. Possibly even today. And I can continue with the novel at the same time.
Personal Note O the Day :
I find writing very easy. I’m flooded with ideas; this is ADHD. Writing is easy; editing is a booger, and marketing is horrible.
Opportunity O the Day:
If anyone would like to be a beta reader for a draft of either book, I’d be grateful. I’ll e-mail you a draft and you can send back your comments, which will be very valuable. You don’t need to finish it if you don’t like it; just let me know why.
