Chester is doing well. I know you all are probably just dying to see a picture of him again 😉 I took this one just a few minutes ago. He is not really loving this heat because he can’t sit in front of an open, screened window and hear the birds and bugs chirping. I love this boy 🙂
Ever since I was a kid, I mean probably since I was in 5th or 6th grade, I have wanted to be an author. I’ve wanted to write and publish books. Over the years, I have tried and tried and tried, but can NEVER finish a novel. I have tons of unfinished novels on my computer an on various USB drives. I even have some handwritten ones from my years in middle and high school.
My problem is my attention span. I get really into something for awhile and then drop it like that. I am terrible at finishing projects. You should see how many crochet projects I have left unfinished. I’m honestly impressed that I’ve ever crocheted anything in its entirety 🙂
Something you probably don’t know is that K has 2 degrees in special education and is working on his PhD in the same field. He suggested that I might have Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) and I tend to agree. I don’t want to slap another label on myself, but it makes sense when I think of some of the issues I have. Also, ADD & OCD tend to be co-morbid disorders, so it’s very possible that I do have ADD.
Anyway, I think this explains somewhat my difficulty in finishing projects. I’m getting to the point where I think I will never get the drive to finish a novel.
Does anyone have any suggestions on how I can finish projects or even how to get on the road to writing and publishing a novel?
I’d love to hear what you have to say!
