Whelp, I finished that book by Dr. Hallowell and Dr. John J. Ratey. All in all, I’d have to say it’s got a ton of info packed into the 379 pages. I didn’t get the “You Mean I’m Not Lazy, Stupid, or Crazy”one cuz it looked a lil bit big, almost did, but instead, I had a victory over a mini bout with impulsively buying 3 books that day… My reading confidence is much better now. I seriously got a lot out of the Delivered from Distraction one, more than I usually get just reading a book the first time. I’m nowhere as educated as Dr. Ned, but I can relate a lot to his kind of ADHD, it kinda shows in his writing. That book encouraged me to take some serious English classes soon. I’m gonna search the Internet for some basic grammar lessons, maybe a creative writing thing. Then just do what Toofat suggested. I still can’t figure out when to use a colon. I think I have a clue about a semi-colon, but I’m still a lil confused about all the other stuff I still don’t know I’m doing wrong. I just have a feeling my writings not up to the level I want it to be. I can’t figure out how to be brief. Maybe brevity is overrated, huh?.

So what kind of writing?, well I ain’t no expert an anything, so probably fiction. My life has been one heck of an action adventure survival story, so I might as well capitalize on how funny and adventurous me surviving ADHD has been. Heck it’s a freakin miracle I’m not dead or locked up!. I’ll make up a story very loosely based on me, and maybe even some of the characters from here. I’ll change the names to protect the innocent of course :-) This is one of my biggest goals.

I definitely respect your opinion Amy, that’s part of why I’m gonna go ahead and tackle that Lazy, Stupid, Crazy one next. After that, the one by Dr. Barkley you mentioned. By the time I read those, n study em. All the new features should be running like a well oiled machine here at the New and Improved totallyadd.com huh?

p.s. This may sound a lil bit lazy, but I will be spending some time searching around for some kind of creative writing educational type thing on the Internet myself, I’m not sure what I’m looking for. But if any of you guys already know of a place that might be what I’m looking for. Could ya post a link to it?. Thanks in advance gang :-)
