Well friends, it seems I have come to the halfway point in my NaNoWriMo experience. As I sit here, pondering on what I have done so far and what must be accomplished by the end of the month, I myself feeling proud. Proud of myself and proud of all of you who are taking on this grand adventure with me. I find my mind wondering to the fact that by the end of this month I will be an author, something I have always dreamed of, but sadly thought was impossible. You see, I have adult ADHD…this means that not only can I not decide on what to write about but I usually have several different ideas in my mind at once. With this being the case, I find myself constantly abandoning my current project to start on yet another crazy story or poem that I have dreamed up. This really hinders my abilities to finish…well just about anything. Then last month my wife brought up the idea of NaNoWriMo to me. I dug out one of my many half thought up stories (deciding which one to work on posed yet another difficulty that I had to overcome). My wife set aside daily word count goals and checked on me everyday. I soon found that having this structure was very helpful in keeping me on task. And now, I sit here, with the realization that I am halfway through with my first novel and the feeling is amazing.
Now, to stop procrastinating and finish working on my book….
