A Person Who Has ADHD Won A Pulitzer Prize! (Click Here to tweet that statement.)

I think it is great to have a Pulitzer Prize winner as a part of our community. If you didn’t know it yet, you do now, Katherine has ADHD and so does her son, Buzz. In fact, Katherine wrote a book about her experiences with her son and their efforts to cope with ADHD! The book is titled Buzz and we’ll talk a little about that in a moment.

Let’s get to the interview! I am sure you will enjoy it. She’s an [...]

Who are the Famous, Successful Women with ADHD?

Who are the Famous, Successful Women with ADHD?

Why don’t we hear more about them? . This is my attempt at guessing part of the reason: . I do not entirely know the answer. However, I do know that for a long time it was thought that ADHD was only an issue for males, but we now know that is simply not the case. Women have ADHD, too! And, I am certain there are many who have overcome, succeeded and who are thriving with ADHD. . But why don’t we hear more about them? . Two of the most successful movie franchises at the moment have women in the lead, doing action flicks as used to be only done by men (Underworld / Resident Evil). Some highly successful women are also becoming self-made millionaires and billionaires, leaving most men in the dust (J. K. Rowling / Sheryl Sandberg). . So what’s notable about these women and their success [...]

What is your life’s purpose? Let’s find out! Even if you have ADHD!

What is your life’s purpose? Let’s find out! Even if you have ADHD!

What is your life’s purpose? What is that “something” that fills you with abundant energy and joy? . Everyone has it, that “It” factor, that special quality that sets them apart from everyone else. It’s their purpose and doing it takes no excessive effort or exasperating force of will. It comes naturally, like a cool breeze on a hot summer’s day. It’s not about making money or meeting any requirements or doing something that you are “told”. . Most of a person’s life with ADHD is doing things that do not come naturally. It starts in school and just seems to continue forever. This typically happens because we live in a world setup for the non-ADDer and we are regularly following guidelines and rules created for people without ADHD. We are constantly trying to “fit in” and be different than we are wired to be. We are today’s left handers practically [...]

Writing Difficulties and ADHD Here Are the Answers

Writing Difficulties and ADHD Here Are the Answers

  As many of you know by now I have written a new book. It is about writing! This last week I received several emails asking me quite a few questions about the new book. In this post I will answer a few of the most frequent questions. It is not published yet, so to stay updated subscribe or like my Facebook page –>.    Is the new book about ADHD and Writing?   The short answer is, no, not specifically. It is for anyone who wants to write and/or publish a book. However, I have ADHD and that means many of the methods I use to write every day have been developed for someone with ADHD. What many outside of the “ADDer World” do not always realize is that many strategies for ADHD work just as well, or, sometimes, even better, for people without ADHD (excluding medication). This means that while the new book is not [...]

How You Can Write and Publish a Book Too!

How You Can Write and Publish a Book Too!

Today is a great day! Today, I finished writing my latest book and it’s perhaps my most ambitious writing since One Boy’s Struggle: A Memoir . This time, though, it is about what I love to do most, it is about writing, blogging and publishing! More specifically, it is for anyone who wants to write and publish a book, especially those who do not feel as though they are qualified to do so. I think you are. If you have a story to tell, then, yes, in my opinion you can write your story and publish it, too!   My new book explains how I did it: How I wrote my books, how I published them and how I got the word out about them and how I continue to do so. I share my writing process, how I am able to write every day, especially how I have learned to [...]

Book Review: Buzz: A Year of Paying Attention by Katherine Ellison

Book Review: Buzz: A Year of Paying Attention by Katherine Ellison

  I was extremely excited to read Buzz to say the least. I had heard of the book and had considered ordering it several times, but as you may know I have ADHD. Sometimes I forget to order stuff that I want, no matter how much I want it! Well, a short while back I met Katherine Ellison and before I knew it we were emailing each other back and forth discussing ADHD and our memoirs. I asked Katherine if she would like to give a signed copy of her book away on ADDer World, the ADHD Social Network. She replied that she would love to and sent me a copy right away. Uhm, again remember that I have ADHD, because I gave Katherine a goofed up address the book went back to her and she nicely, and ever so gently, let me know. I admitted my goof and corrected [...]

The First Rule of ADHD – NOT to talk about ADHD and why we should Change it

The First Rule of ADHD – NOT to talk about ADHD and why we should Change it

  The first rule of ADHD is not to talk about ADHD. You may be aware of this unspoken, super-secret rule, and you may have already broken it several times. However, there are thousands of people who live by this rule out of necessity, out of fear of judgment, and out of fear of reprisal. You may walk past, work with, or study with people that have ADHD and never know it, unless they break the rule and talk about their ADHD. What if someone you know as a good person and seems to do well told you that he or she has ADHD? What would change? How would you then view them? Would you then be more critical of every mistake they ever made and reanalyze your opinion of them? Many people consider the first rule of ADHD to be very important in order to maintain privacy, and to avoid misjudgment. Did you [...]
