Today I am happy to announce I have released a new book titled “Writer’s Doubt.”
Over the years, since I started this blog in 2007 and have published 10 books, some free and some available on Amazon, I have been asked countless times how I write so much even though I have ADHD.
To be honest my biggest struggle with writing hasn’t so much been my ADHD symptoms (if anything writing helps my symptoms), but rather, self-doubt. Granted, I probably suffered from more doubt than the average, normal person because I grew up with undiagnosed ADHD, but ultimately, doubt has been my primary nemesis. And I think this is especially true for a lot of people, like you and me, with ADHD.
As the title, “Writer’s Doubt” reveals, the book is about writing and overcoming doubt, it is not about ADHD. In fact, ADHD is never mentioned in the book. I did not mention ADHD because I didn’t want anyone to mix the two issues together. Because, honestly, everyone suffers from doubt from time to time, sometimes it can be overwhelming and sometimes it’s just an annoyance, but no one can completely avoid doubt, because we’re all human after all.
So I decided to write only about doubt and how I have learned to manage it and overcome it in certain situations, specifically with regard to writing. However, the strategies and encouragement I write about in “Writer’s Doubt” can be helpful to most anyone in most any situation, even if you have ADHD, as I do.
The book answers the questions on how I write so much, meet my writing goals and publish. The book also goes into my experiences with blogging, how I started a blog and maintain daily rituals that help me keep writing, even when I don’t feel like writing.
If you’ve ever suffered from doubt (who hasn’t?), then I know you’ll enjoy this book. If you’ve ever wanted to know how someone with ADHD actually accomplishes his goals and successfully manages a writing career, this book reveals how I do it. I only ask when you read it to keep in mind, the book is not about ADHD, just want to be upfront with you about that. It’s about doubt and how one person, me, achieves his dreams of writing books and publishing them despite the odds and overcoming relentless self-doubt.
How do I overcome doubt? How do I create work that matters despite the odds? How do I manage to achieve my writing goals and write every day?
Would the answers to those questions be valuable information to you?
I hope you enjoy the book. You can download a copy for your kindle on Amazon.
