Is there such a thing as "creative ADD"? There should be, cause I feel like I've been suffering from it for a long time. What is creative ADD? It's a condition where you begin a project or develop the desire for a project but at some point other projects pop into your head that you feel you have to finish them at the expense of other projects.
For example, I have stories that I have written; some require multiple parts in order to tell the story I want to tell. But after a certain point, I can't write said particular story but other stories have popped into my head but they don't require as many parts to write so I am able to finish those faster.
Now you may say to yourself, isn't that like writers block and procrastination? Yes and no. Yes, you have writers block but you can still write. It just ends up being a different story that's shorter than the main one you started on. Yes, you are putting off writing the main one but you still find time to write the other stories that come to mind.
That doesn't mean you will stop; you eventually can finish. It just takes a little longer than you would like to.
It's definitely frustrating for me because I want to finish my main story or stories but, I feel that if I don't follow through with the other idea(s) I'll forget it and not do it at all. I'm not sure what causes it really. But I guess lack of motivation has a lot to do with it.
Now before someone starts to offer some form of constructive criticism, I would advise against that because I'm not looking for it nor do I wish to receive it at this point. I merely just wanted to lament and vent and get it off my chest. I'm not looking for a solution because I already know what that is. I have to force myself to finish what I've started so I can feel like I have accomplished something and be able to move onto the next one.
Ok, I think I'm done here. Later days.
