Fave Links Friday 7/26: Autistic Protagonists, ADHD symptoms and more!

If you’ve found yourself wondering where all the good writing’s gone, I’ve decided to share some of my favorite links with you on a weekly basis! It might be short fiction, it might be news articles, it might be random blog posts from me and from others!

None of these links are sponsored. I really just liked them!

Don’t forget, you can check out previous weeks’ lists in the Fave Links Friday category!

I strongly encourage you to call your representatives and tell them you won’t stand for concentration camps. You can use Common Cause to find out who your reps are and what they stand for if you aren’t sure.

This evening I’ll be seeing Florida Georgia Line live in concert with my best friend and I’m very excited! I expect them to be very fun to see live and also the venue should have Very Good Alcohol, which is always a bonus for me. Kristi and I will be going to quite a few concerts in the next few months and it’ll be great. And now that I’ve shared some real-life fun, on to even more fun!

This week’s links are accidentally all neurodiverse, which I’m all about.

Towards a Neurodiverse Future: Writing an Autistic Heroine

I loved this personal essay by Ada Hoffman and I can’t wait to read The Outside for myself as a fellow autistic woman.

Also from Tor.com is a short story by Rivers Solomon, author of An Unkindness of Ghosts. 

Rivers wrote this about it: “I wrote a story about an enslaved girl so full of rage her fury rips open a seam between this world & the Other. Forced to carry the undead in her womb before birthing them back to life, she’s had better days.”

Blood Is Another Word for Hunger

My last link is about the true signs of ADHD and what are really the signs you should watch for.

“The textbook signs of ADD — inattention, hyperactivity, and impulsivity — fail to reflect several of its most powerful characteristics; the ones that shape your perceptions, emotions, and motivation. Here, Dr. William Dodson explains how to recognize and manage ADHD’s true defining features of rejection sensitivity, emotional hyperarousal, and hyperfocus.”

3 Defining Features of ADHD That Everyone Overlooks

In other news, Second Wind is out in the world! You can pick it up on amazon as an ebook or a paperback! I may be biased, but I think you’ll love it! 😉
