You have this terrifying idea but don't know how to make it scary or bring it to life. That's enough to overthink your novel and writing ability.
Starting out on Wattpad is super fun. You get inspired by stories then end up writing your own book. Some time passes and you aren't getting anyone to read your stories. You feel like you've tried everything. From promoting your works to updating every day.
I've had ADHD for as long as I can remember and this made its way into my adult life. I am an artist, so there are times I feel like ADHD is my superpower vs my struggle. As an artist and working person, I had to set boundaries for myself.

You meet a man who claims he's a Jinn (another creation) and he begs you for a place to stay in exchange for power. He promises he'll make you rich if you take care of him. The catch is that you can never see his face because if you do, your heart won't be able to take the fear. You take care of the man, but you must be careful not to look at his face while doing so.
I don't believe in ghosts nor do I believe I'm haunted. However, I am curious if the things I see and hear during my sleep paralysis mean anything.
Outside my window on a Friday afternoon the clouds are clashing together into a giant ball of anger. Any signs of a blue sky is fading away. Far away from my neighborhood. The kids outside are cleaning and gathering all their belongings at the sight of the incoming storm. It hasn't touch down yet, but anyone with nerve damage can probably predict that we're about to have a pretty nasty storm. The apartments are made of brick and very close together. Each neighbor has porch to share their own share of grass on the side of each house. Everyone has a different but small garden and collection of plants. We just a have a skeleton from last Halloween sitting on our stairs in front of the apartment. Today it still looks as dead as ever.
