Nano Poblano – Day 26: ADD Strikes!


Not to diminish the severity of the impact ADD has on the lives of people who truly suffer with it, but is it possible to “catch” it in times of stress? Why do I ask? Let me tell you.

In the amount of time it took me to decide what I was going to write about today, click on my dashboard and get into “Add New Post,” I came up with six more things I want to write about – the last of which is the fact that spellcheck (I guess Firefox’s version) has finally chosen to insert its ass in my subject line. Apparently “Poblano” isn’t a word. Who knew?

So yeah, the other stuff in backwards order of the idea light bulb coming on over my head are:

1. I realized I haven’t answered any of my comments today, so I wanted to apologize for that in advance of my upcoming eye drops. I’ll try to get to some before I leave for the appointment however.

2. My battery works!! It’s ALIVE!!!! And yes, it was free. ๐Ÿ˜€

3. My occupational therapist appointment went well. I’ve got to do a few exercises, mildly limit my movement for a couple of weeks, and get my laptop into a better position. Oh, and move around once in a while. OH, and check out an aqua fitness program. OH! And get a body pillow. Good call to all of those who came up with the idea when I was considering a sleeping companion.

4. I’m working on writing enough “Scenes from the Second Seat on the Right” so they’ll keep publishing while I’m gone.

5. Beta readers!! I need a few people who are serious about wanting to beta my novel. I’ll be looking to find out if it’s interesting enough to captivate my audience, notes on any inconsistencies, and I’m planning to put a note in it of my own to ask about thoughts on splitting it into two or three books. I’d like to have it read while I’m away, if I can get it ready by the time I leave. Let me know if you want a copy! I’ll take three readers for now. Please email me at bacamjoly at gmail dot com if you’re interested.

6. … And now that I’m finally at my original idea for posting today, I’ve forgotten what it is.

What do you think? Am I ready for an ADD diagnosis yet?

  1. Busy woman – lots of thinking going on in there. Ha! i happy for your battery – Yeah!


  2. Talk about ADD. And I forgot to say, no, I don’t think you have ADD. I just think your mind is fantastically fast and pretty darn sharp and damn, I’m glad the battery is free and functioning. Yay.


  3. I went to the eye doctor today, too, Linda G. I looked in the mirror when I got home and my pupils were still so big I saw out of the back of my head! That’s a scary moment. ๐Ÿ˜ฎ
    Thanks for the Mr. Fabulous. Can I keep that moniker? Hahahaha.


  4. Please let me be one of your beta readers Linda!!! I love your writing and your creative mind. ๐Ÿ˜ƒ


  5. There has never been a doubt in my mind that I have been “touched” with ADD. Hmmmm…adult testing wouldn’t be the worst idea but the I^d have to change and get used to myself again? Uggghhhh….


  6. The answer is yes. And did you have surgery? Why OT? I think I missed it. And don’t want to butt in. ๐Ÿ™‚
