Just Do a Little


 I’m on the eighth draft of the new book, doing grammar and spell checking with Grammarly, the grammar and spell checking app. Tedious. Grammarly keeps wanting me to put commas in. I see no point in adding a comma unless it helps make the sentence clearer so I rebel. But overall Grammarly is very helpful. I wish I’d used it on my previous books.  It’s amazing that you can read the same sentence ten times and not see the error.

My guess is it’s the 10th draft that will get published, but I’m not guessing when. I think I have a really good idea for the cover, and I need to start working on that.
Strategy:
Keep plugging away. Try to do some every day, and usually once I get started I keep going for a while. No pressure, no rush, but I would like to get it finished. (You realize that this is a good strategy for lots of tasks? Just commit to doing a little and then see what happens.)

Note:

Grammarly is also much more fond of hyphens than I am.

About doug with ADHD

I am a psychiatric physician. I learned I have ADHD at age 64, and then wrote two ADHD books for adults, focusing on strategies for making your life better. I just published my first novel, Alma Means Soul. Your Life Can Be Better; strategies for adults with ADD/ADHD available at amazon.com, or smashwords.com (for e books) Living Daily With Adult ADD or ADHD: 365 Tips O the Day ( e-book). This is one tip at a time, one page at a time, at your own pace. It's meant to last a year. As a child, I was a bully. Then there was a transformation. Now I am committed to helping people instead abusing them. The Bully was published in January, 2016. It's in print or e book, on Amazon.
