Secret to Productive Prolific Writing! ADHD and Passion

Secret to Productive Prolific Writing! ADHD and Passion
Thumbnail image for Secret to Productive Prolific Writing! ADHD and Passion

Every day (and I do mean every day!) I get at least one email with the question that never fails to be asked. But. It’s not the right question. . Question: How do you write so much and so often? (Usually two questions in one. Sneaky. I get it.) I have a book coming out soon called Write Anyway! In my new book I reveal all of my writing secrets, but for this post I will answer the real question. Yep, I know the real question. There’s always a real question! . Short Answer: Passion! . Long Answer: ADHD and Passion. (I gave it away in the title didn’t I? Darn ADHD!) . Even Longer Answer (there always is a longer answer): . ADHD has always been the answer. It’s written in the stars, in the sky – in the everywhere. But, there’s a trick. A secret, if you will. You […]

Prayer and ADHD

Prayer and ADHD

For me one of the best ways to control my impulses, or to find answers, is to believe in, and talk to God, the Universe or something higher using prayer. If I want to do something, but I don’t think I can: I Pray about it. If I want to control myself, but feel out of control: I Pray about it. If I want to slow down, but feel myself running when I should be walking: I Pray about it. If I want “fill in the blank”: I Pray about it. The key isn’t to know the answers or to even receive a divine answer, or providential influence: it is the process of slowing down and talking ‘it’ out with one’s self and the Universe, God or the entity that you choose. We don’t always need another ‘opinion’ to help us, but since ADHD is an ‘impulse control’ issue it’s […]

The Beauty of Writing – Lessons in Writing

The Beauty of Writing – Lessons in Writing

“Dancing with the feet is one thing, but dancing with the heart is another.” Author unknown One of the most frequent inquiries that I get is about writing. It’s a funny thing, writing, you don’t have to be very good at it to do it and I am not very good at it. Some say I am, some say I am not and some are in-between.  It’s nice to hear that someone has enjoyed something I have written, and it is painful to hear that my writing isn’t all that good. Either way, I benefit from my ADHD mind in that I don’t focus on criticism too long (not all criticism anyway). It’s not that I don’t care, because trust me, I do care, but one way or the other I just keep on writing. My thoughts and fingers love to dance. For me, what’s the most bizarre, is when someone asks me […]

Yes, I am flawed.

Yes, I am flawed.

In love and happiness, for better or worse, in sadness and sorrow. The days go by, countless they pass. I remember the days gone by, the walks late at night and your glistening hair in the moon light. I remember those days. I remember running across a bridge to capture your heart as you captured mine. For better or worse, I may be flawed, but I love you. I never thought there was a love so strong, so powerful. I never thought someone could capture me in rapture and delight, in pain and misery and in happiness and laughter. Life is all of those things, as is love. And love, my dear, is life. Without your love I was lost, with your love I have been found. I am so lucky. For so long I wasn’t. Yes, I am flawed. You know that and you love me anyway. You offer me your […]

Back to My Roots!

Back to My Roots!

Over the last few months I haven’t written as much as I would like here on my blog. For some strange reason I have been distracted. Figure that. Odd as that may be.   I could tell you a zillion excuses. If you know how fast I think of and write articles, you would soon realize that a zillion excuses do not qualify. Just check the sitemap 🙂   No, I had writers block. That’s what I called it, but, that’s not what it was.   I have gotten away from writing what I want to write. I have gotten away from writing what I originally set out to write and some of my articles have gone in a direction I never truly felt at one with. For a time I have been trying to mix in perceptions of others and just plain not writing from my heart.   I am […]
