When I started this blog as part of a writing course, it was a lark. As the course continued I made an effort to write a minimum of three posts a week for five weeks to prove that I could consistently come up with original content. Read the rest of this entry »

ADHD Awareness Week …

16 09 2010

Wow, this seems like an oxymoron, being aware of my inability to pay attention consistently. But I do get it. It’s not for me, it’s for others.

Myth or Myth-er?

ADD-Apt or get out!

3 09 2010

I had this brilliant idea that, as is often the case, started out as a joke. I stated on facebook that I was going to start a website called ADD-Verse for ADHD poets to publish their work. The idea was taken seriously so the site was begun. http://addverse.wordpress.com
