    ADHD Student attempting to finish a novel

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by pretzelkarma, Jun 4, 2012.

    My 8th grade teacher told my mom once "She's so intelligent she could write a book, but forget the paper to write it on" ... He's unfortunately semi right, i'm almost 30 you'd think i'd finish something by now! I'm a medicated ADHD, so i'm not gonna go flying off the walls into OH LOOK ITS A SPARKLY KITTY mode any time soon :)

    I've been writing ever since i did ..well i did stories as a kid, not in novel form , but i'd forget to clean my room and write stories instead. Unfortunately, i don't know where the hell those stories went and many of the characters are long gone.

    My novel i'm ATTEMPTING to write is called point blank, and ther'es a few sub series inside of it that make me just go "WHEN CAN I FINISH" Except, with life and ADHD and schooling i tend to get a chapter or two done and three years later another story comes along :)

    I'm studying for social work, not sure how much social i am at this idea of WORK; but we'll get there :p. I'm almost 30, as i said - and i'm into video games a bit, i dork out so hard on minecraft and pangya golf.. and music tends to rule my writing.

    Right now i'm about to quit pissing around and get some sleep so i can study for exams in a week XD

    Welcome to Writing Forums, pretzelkarma!

    I hope you find what you're looking for here, whatever your interests in writing.

    This forum aims to provide the best workshopping resources on the internet, and to that end we have a few rules which you should familiarise yourself with before you get stuck in. The main section of the site is the Writing Workshop, where members can post their writing in order to receive critique of their work.

    However, before we allow members to post their work, they must have met some basic requirments. Firstly, you must have been a member for fourteen days, and have made twenty posts on the forum overall (please note, posts in Word Games do not count towards this). This is so that members, when they post their work, have familiarised themselves with the forums and contributed to them (as well as hopefully learned something for themselves). Secondly, members must provide two constructive reviews of other people's work for each piece of their own that they wish to post. This is because we believe that the focus of workshopping should be equally upon giving reviews as receiving them, as they allow a writer to practice and improve their editing skills, which they can then apply to their own writing.

    Beyond the Writing Workshop, you will find that we have extensive forums for discussion of aspects of writing, as well as a community area for general discussion. We also run periodic short story and poetry contests, which are good for challenging yourself and expanding your skills.

    If you have any questions or problems, then the moderators (myself, Cogito, Lemex and Dante Dases) should be your first port of call. Any technical problems with the site itself should be directed to Daniel, the site administrator and owner. I would recommend you have a look over the rules so that you know what to expect, and what is expected. But aside from that, I hope you enjoy your time here.

    Thank you i hope that inbetween my studying for exams i'll get more involved in the processes; i find that Deviant Art isn't giving me the level of help i need in terms of developing things. :(
