10 Tips for the ADHD writer to help start and finish your novel
Updated: Apr 5
As many of my fellow ADHD peeps know, the hardest thing about having ADHD is getting started! That’s why I had countless unfinished stories that had been tossed aside either out of frustration, disinterest or simply because something else bright and shiny caught my eye.
Regardless, I couldn’t write or finish a novel to save my life, not until I found the right tools and by utilizing these tools and tricks I was able to write and finish a 100,000 words paranormal romance!

If you are struggling to finish or start your novel, here are 10 tips from my own experience that I hope will help you as well!
For me I realized I didn’t actually know how to go about writing a novel. Another problem was that I wasn’t writing enough on a regular basis to find my voice. Whatever it is, identify it and then research the tools that are out there (books, podcasts, support groups) to help you.
This book was the key to helping me start and complete my novel.
I realized before I would just have an idea and start writing without any idea of who my characters were or how my plot and scenes would unfold. Planning and brainstorming your novel is key, and once you do that it’s okay if some pantsing (writing on the fly) occurs as you continue writing.
I still do a lot of writing on the fly when an idea strikes. It’s good to have a balance!
