Toofat…

I love to write, and when I get inspired and sit down at the keyboard, the hyperfocus kicks in within minutes. Next thing I know, It’s about 14 hours later, I have to pee like a racehorse, and I have a 32-page short-story written. Gotta love that!

Creativity comes pretty easily for me…about 12 times a minute, like a lot of other ADDers, I suspect. I’ve come up with creative solutions for all sorts of problems. For instance, helping my dad change out the transmission on his Ford Ranger. We didn’t have a transmission jack, but we *did* have a bunch of old 2 X 4’s lying around, so I stacked a bunch of ’em up, laid 2 more over top of the fulcrum I’d just made, stuck ’em under the trans, and bada-bing, bada-boom, we got the transmission in the truck! Took about 10 minutes, and this after Dad spent about 4 hours struggling to get the damn thing in with a regular floor jack.

Halloween costumes are where my creativity really gets a chance to shine through. I can whip together a bad-ass costume at the last minute for about 30 bucks, and I’m getting compliments all night long. Making monster dummies is pretty easy, too. Fact is, I love doing that sort of thing, taking a bunch of old junk and kitbashing up a mad scientist, complete with a moving head, bubbling beakers, and an electrical console with working gauges! Hyperfocus helps out a lot there, too.

As hard as it can be to get through the work day, things like that make it all worthwhile.
