So, I started this thread while I was editing and now I have started the sequel. It is still a Slice Of Life and Teen Fiction, and I was wondering if anyone had any advice for me to make this the best it can be. And I want to make my character’s ADHD realistic, as much as possible.
He gets into fights, taps his foot / fingers / grinds his teeth, zones out in conversations, but talks a lot to his friend. He is 16 so I am not sure what medication he would go on, so any advice on that would be helpful (he came off it for a bit but is going back on it and is starting therapy. Will probably stop medication when he settles more.)
The story is about a bunch of teenagers who are all going through something, this one focusing on someone with anxiety, and someone with ADHD, mainly showing two characters and their journey to not overcome it, but to change their perspectives, I guess would be the best way to say it.
I need to find a way to make the narrative interesting while it is set in the everyday life of these teenagers.
Is there anything I should add, avoid, keep in mind? Any help, advice, or input on how to do that best is appreciated. Also, you can ask me anything about him / the plot if it would make it easier to help me out here lol.
