a) i have a really short attention span

anonymous asked:

So I'm going to try and commit to making a comic... any tips? I have a short attention span so making comics are quite difficult but I love making them.

Seeing you mentioned “have a short attention span” so here is some of my not-really-professional advices for you welp, hope they can help.

1) Grow a habit for marking down your ideas for plots/characters/even drafts for the comic! Just mark them down in a notebook/sketchbook/even your own phone. You can use your own spare time aka when you have nothing particular to do for doing this (e.g. wait for bus,breaks from lessons/work or during lessons because I am a irresponsible student lmao don’t follow me) As I am slowly starting on my own OC comic (it is a secret shhhhh) I started sketched down drafts for how my comic goes on, which just looks like this lmao:

(As far as you can understand the contents yourself, it is ok for your stuffs to be messy *Audible wink*)
This is not only for using time more efficiently in editing your ideas, also saving your energy when you start actually drawing stuffs out.

2) While you are drawing your comic, look out for whether yourself being distracted to doing other stuffs. If you find yourself have been sneaking out for shitposting on Tumblr/looking unrelated stuffs on other websites, drive yourself back into your drawing immediately, internet is always powerful enough to suck away your time. Of course you are allowed to take breaks, maybe set up several 10~15 minutes breaks for you to relax, let your eyes and hands and brain to rest is important. But above all, don’t force your body to do things out of your limit. It is ok to take things slowly, you draw for fun, if forced, nothing will be fun anymore.

3) Make sure you have enough energy when drawing. Drawing under a tired situation will never make you work be good as your brain can’t even work firmly. If you still want to finish another page first while it is already midnight, go sleep first. There is no time limit for your comics, you health is always on top of that. Moreover, sufficient sleep can gain you more attention span as well!

4) If your aim is to make a GOOD comic, don’t hesitate to look up tutorials and reference! There are already so many good teaching references from how to plan comic frames to basic anatomy, learning is forever good.

This post has talked about how to do well time management in a really clear way, way better than my clumsy words haha. I hope all these helps!

anonymous asked:

lmao do you have something against movies?

No I just have a really short attention span so I can’t sit still through a full one. I don’t think I’m like better than watching movies haha and I’m not one of those people who thinks watching movies is a “waste of time”, I just can never pay attention for long enough to enjoy one.

I hate it when people say “oh it’s just a phase” when referring to something you really like such as a band. Like excuse you? I’m not some hoe who loves something for a couple months and then completely abandons it.

Winchester brothers-Secrets

Title:Secrets

Pairings:Winchester brothers x sister reader

Word count:1033

Request:it was where the reader is adhd but hides it from teh boys. they only find out after she runs out of pills and is acting waaay different (hyper/distracted, always blurting out random facts), and she’s too young to refill her own perscription. thanks wolf, you are a great writer, keep up the AMAZING work. the reason i want this one is i may be adhd myself and i’m really stressed/worried about it.

Having Adhd was hard. Especially having it at such a young age. Sam and Dean always teased you for having a short attention span and zoning out but they didn’t know it was something serious and that really bothered you.

 They didn’t know you had Adhd. At this exact moment you was staring to panic because you were staring to run out of your medication and were to young to refill your own prescription. 

You had started off just pacing the floor, hands shaking as you constantly clicked your fingers together in a annoyingly loud tone. You then stopped and started to drum your hands against your thighs and paced even faster before twirling and circling the table. 

Dean looked up at you through the top of the newspaper as he glanced over towards a confused yet slightly amused Sam. Dean stood up, grasping your elbows as he sat you down in the empty chair that was in between the two of you. 

Dean sighed in relief when he sat back down in his own seat and picked back up the newspaper. 

You started to bounce your knee as you rested you elbow on the table and tapped your fingers against the oak with the other one. 

‘’Did you know that the pyramids used to be transparent and white with diamonds’’You blurted. Sam gave you a nod of approval and dismissed the fact that it was totally random. 

‘’Did you know the smallest robber used to sneak in people’s bags to get their luggage on planes’’You added quickly before standing up so fast the chair knocked over. 

Dean stood up in annoyance as he glared at you making you feel guilty. ‘’Okay, what the hell had you squirming in your pants.’’Dean growled, ‘’You had to much sugar?’’He questioned with narrowed eyes. 

‘’No’’You breathed out as you tried to sit back down to show them you were fine but felt the itch pull at you as you started to clap your hands together as you puffed out your cheeks and looked towards the ceiling. 

‘’(y/n), what’s wrong with you?’’Sam asked as he shut his laptop screen. He turned his chair so he could put his full attention on you. You looked away, bouncing your leg still as you tried to look anywhere but at your brothers. 

Dean know got the concept that you were seriously bothered about something so he stopped his harsh glare which turned to a more softer one as he gently brushed your hair away from your face. 

‘’Did you know that Earthworms have five hearts?’’You blurted before you bit your lip and looked away. 

‘’That great sweetie but that’s not what we needed to know’’Dean chuckled softly. ‘’We need to know what’s wrong with you-hey.. (y/n)’’Dean said as he snapped his fingers in front of your face from the loss of your attention.

Sam frowned, trying to pull together all the facts. He knew he knew what was wrong he just couldn’t seem to grasp the concept of what it was. 

You got up, both brothers looking at you dumbfounded as you headed towards your bathroom. 

‘’Is the conversation over?’’Dean mumbled confused with raised brows. Sam just shrugged over at Dean before they both spotted you coming back. You shyly stood by Sam as you shakily handed him a bottle.

He frowned, brows knitting together as he gently took it out of your hands and turned the bottle over. He flashed you a reassuring smile before looking down at the bottle. 

At first his expression was confused as his brows knitted further together almost fusing into one before they rose in realisation. 

‘’You have Adhd’’Sam breathed out. Dean stood up straighter as he and Sam shared a look of concern.

‘’Babe why didn’t you tell us?’’Dean muttered as he watched your pacing form. 

‘’I just didn’t want you to think I was stupid or that I couldn’t hunt anymore and wouldn’t listen ad-’’You rambled until Sam stood up and braced both hands on either one of your shoulders. 

‘’Darling you’re rambling. It’s okay we understand just don’t hide anything like this from us again’’Sam smiled as he pecked your forehead.

‘’If you have Adhd (y/n)…’’Dean trailed off. ‘’And you’re taking pills why are you all worked up now?’’Dean asked confused. Sam walked back over to the table as he picked up the labelled bottle and through it towards Dean. 

Dean caught it on instinct as he looked at it before glancing towards Sam. ‘’It’s empty’’Dean stated in realisation.  Sam nodded as you gripped his shirt but continued to tap your foot on the floor. 

‘’She’s to young to go get her own refill’’Sam added. Dean nodded, mouth forming a ‘0′ shape as he got up and grabbed his jacket. 

‘’Well lets go get your next prescription’’Dean smiled as he slung his jacket on, Sam following his actions. 

‘’(y/n)?’’Sam called when he noticed you weren’t following. They both shared a look as they turned around to see you scratching your nail varnish off and they both knew they had lost your attention again. 

Dean chuckled as he walked towards you and clicked his fingers in front of your face. 

‘’huh?’’You mumbled as you stopped picking and looked up. He chuckled as he slung his arm over your shoulder and pressed a chaste kiss to your head. 

‘’C’mon’’he grinned. 

****************************

You smiled as Sam came back out of the doctors office and greeted you and Dean. ‘’You get them?’’Dean asked as you both got up. Sam pulled a bottle out from his pocket and handed them over to you.

You sighed in relief as you undid the lid and threw back a pill, feeling much better although it probably wasn’t going to kick in yet. 

As soon as you got in you climbed into your bed and waited as your brother both came in and bid you a goodnight. They both leaned down and kissed your forehead before making sure you were tucked in properly and that all the signals were okay. 

‘’Don’t ever hide anything like this from us again (y/n). We love you and would never be ashamed or angry by anything like this’’

so you know that fagles translation of the odyssey i’m always on about? my flatmate has just discovered that it is available as an audiobook read by, and this is completely true, ian mckellan, and, even better, it’s all on youtube for free! it’s genuinely amazing, and i really recommend it for anyone who has a hard time with reading long texts; i’m not really in a position to judge myself, but my flatmate is dyslexic and he says it’s great for him because he finds dense texts tiring, and i personally love it because i have a really short attention span and having someone read this stuff out loud is so much easier to concentrate on

Author’s Note: Here it is everyone! The end has come. I have reservations about how this last part came out mostly because it was written while I had a fever going on and I have a really short attention span when I become sick. Nevertheless, here it is and feedback will be greatly appreciated.

Happy Birthday Tim Rice-Oxley 

“I think my influences as a songwriter come from far and wide, but especially from books. I’m quite a slow reader, and I think I really engage with a book emotionally. Often a book will really be a big part of my life for however long it takes me to read it. Sometimes I’ll be dipping into it for weeks and months, reading a few pages at a time, because I have a terribly short attention span. And when I’m not reading it, I’ll find myself thinking about it, and talking to other people about it. I think all that does definitely come out in my songwriting.”

Being a writer with a short attention span is the fucking worst because I’ll be really interested in a subject for like a month or two??? Like I’ll spend every waking hour developing a world and characters and going “OH MY GOD WHAT IF THE MAGIC WORKED THIS WAY” or “OH MY GOD WHAT IF THEIR BIOLOGY WAS LIKE THIS” and having a real grand time developing the story, and then I’ll start writing and five days later my attention span is up and I no longer want to write the thing. It’s not even that it got too hard for me, it’s that I’m no longer interested in the thing. It’s not fun any more. How the hell am I supposed to write a novel like this?

Let’s Talk about ADHD

Some of you may think that ADHD is just someone getting distracted by squirrels all the time. And while easily distracted is a symptom, it’s more than that. (In all honesty, I got distracted by a video I was watching for 5 minutes up to this point.)

AD(H)D isn’t a brain disorder, per say. It’s a Neurological disorder where messages to the brain are fired faster than normal. This results in divided thinking and short attention spans. Someone with AD(H)D will start a project and leave it unfinished to start a new one. They won’t think to do something until they see it right in front of them. Most of their decisions are made on the fly, not really thinking too ahead.

Now, the H in ADHD means Hyperactivity. That means that…Ohh how do I explain this…Your thoughts are usually displayed through impulsive actions? You act before you think? Something like that. It’s tricky for me to explain.

Now, unmedicated, people with ADHD have a very hard time concentrating on important things like school work or anything that doesn’t really grab their attention. It makes passing school very tough. And the hyperactivity makes it hard for them to make friends who aren’t scared off by their boundless energy.

As someone who had to go through the first grade undiagnosed, it was difficult for me to really fit in. I had a hard time making friends. And when I was finally diagnosed, but when I forgot to take medication, I ended up scaring my friends because they weren’t used to this ricocheting personality I have. I didn’t feel like I had a chance to make many friends. And I ended up getting picked on and bullied (sometimes even physically kicked) until the eighth grade.

To this day, I wish I had the same way of functioning like the other kids. I wish I didn’t have so many thoughts at once all the time. I wish I could control my energy without the use of pills. ADHD sounds like fun, but it isn’t all fun and games.

Now, I hear all sorts of Squirrel jokes all the time because of my disorder. And I’ll usually laugh because it’s true. But this is something that you should keep in mind:

DON’T GET CARRIED AWAY. NEVER ALLOW SOMEONE WITH ADHD TO BECOME THE JOKE ITSELF.

We Should Take Some Time Off

AUTHORS NOTE: So I know I haven’t really written in a while due to the issues with my attention span and other mental issue things, but I decided to do this short fluff because why not lol. Point is, I hope it’s alright :)

So when Luke had that amazing stubble of his not too long ago, I was itching to draw him and Calum in a fanart where Luke wants to kiss Calum but Calum pretends to not want to kiss him because of his stubble when it was really because he was so turned on by how sexy it made Luke looks. I had to draw it and had the drawing lines for a week or so. I got around to finally finishing it today. Well as finished as I could be bothered to cause I have a short attention span. And guess what, flameretardant123 actually wrote a cute as heck drabble on this stubble topic too! Check out Beard Destiny!

Toodles till my next fanart :)

watching movies with a short attention span

Everyone with ADHD or  a short attention span knows the terror of watching movies or 40 minute episodes. Here are some things that help me focus:


- put your phone on the other side of the room/out of reach. We all check our phones for one quick message and 20 micutes later we’re on instagram, tumblr, … having no idea what happened the past 20 minutes in the movie.

- fidget.

- watch the movie/show in your second language or a language that you don’t know. IDK it just works really well.

- watch in a dark room. I know everyone keeps saying how important it is to sit in bright places but trust me it’s so much easier to focus without other visual stimulation

- know when to stop. If you feel like you can’t focus anymore, stop. Run up and down the stairs a few times, check your social media for a few minutes, get some water. Just continue when you feel like you can focus on the screen again.
