    1. No problem. My fiance’ has ADHD/ADD so I’m very interested in becoming more educated. I have a blog (Managing ADHD Chaos) dedicated to living with an ADHD/ADD partner as well because there doesn’t seem to be much information on what us partners can do to help organize, understand, and cope.

  1. Aw, thanks. 🙂 You know, I used to NEVER be able to finish anything until I joined inkpop. So I can totally feel you there. Before I joined a writing site and had others to write with, I was constantly changing ideas and hardly ever finishing anything. I think short stories are definitely the way to go if you find it hard to finish something. Once you can do that, then I suggest tackling things like novels. I hope they will. Should be fun, too.

    1. Hi J.M.!

      Yes, I am doing NaNoWriMo this year. I won’t be writing anything new, though–I’m going to edit/re-write Whispertown so I can hopefully start querying it soon.

      I’m glad you enjoyed it. I hope to be able to post work again one day OR have my work published so they can be read. Whichever comes first. 🙂

      Are you doing NaNoWriMo?

      – J.N.
