Do not give me that look. It is a real condition.
Honest. (Fine, maybe it’s not an ‘official’ condition yet)
WE ALL suffer from it at some point. (If you don’t it’s highly contagious and it will strike you eventually)
What is it?
Writer’s Attention Deficit Disorder. WADD
You know the symptoms: Unfocused, and you have an inability to stay on track with your story. Ideas are just rattling about inside your head. No idea really works for your story and you keep vacillating between what you want and should write. NOTHING seems to fit. For those with a very bad case they are unable to start a story. The worst is if you cannot even FINISH a story
Treatment: Varies. Chocolate sometimes helps. Exercise. The best thing is to find the one thing that motivates you (and no, not the bill collector—fear just makes it worse).
Well, I would like to say I have found the cure, but the bottom line is it is a chronic illness, everyone gets it at some point and it keeps coming back. (If you think about it, WADD is like a Cold. A virus that just hangs around and strikes when your immune system is weak)
Do you have W.A.D.D.? How do you "blow" it off?
This is something we talk about a lot. Still I could not resist the pun....
Yes, I have issues, but that is another blog and another time.
