What do you consider to be your biggest accomplishment here at EF?

I know a few of you are going to think it is the amount of reviews I have written, but while that is an issue of pride...it is not what I personally consider my biggest accomplishment. My personal biggest accomplishment has been regaining my ability to write again, the words I have rediscovered and the progress I have made in accepting, dealing with and learning the steps needed to be functional with ADD. This is all just from writing...not from reaching 100 reviews. I have a good grip on retraining myself.

That was kind of awesome to hear. I haven't been here long enough to have many accomplishments, but I have ADHD, so I see where you're coming from.

The first review I wrote, I had taken Adderall, and I think it came out really well. The rest have been really hard to write, simply because I can't pay attention. I'm glad to hear this site has helped you!

I have also been able to reconcet with my love of writing. I still have a lot to learn; but thank goodness, all my eng comp classes are coming back to me. Also, my vidoes are a huge acomplishment for me. I have learned to use lighting and how to edit the videos to match the music I choose. I really enjoy making them.

Learning how to right for me, I have always been able to say what's on my mind but not always able to put them into text properly.

The first review I wrote, I had taken Adderall, and I think it came out really well. ...
I have a list of necessities to include for a review and a calendar (the Eden one), that I write my target dates on. When I receive my item in the mail, I write in the date I want the review to be done. The target date is usually one week from receiving the item or sooner if we have a marathon weekend planned.

If I finish a review prior to the target date, then I can add another review in its place (completely optional), and I get one of my personal goal items. I add up my monthly total of reviews and if I reach that total then I reward myself.

I also have a deadline per 25,50 and 100 reviews. If I reach that goal, then I get to pick something off my Long Term Goal list. I also have the option of adding more reviews or not--I always do-- and having a chance at getting more of the goal items.

My Personal Goal items are on a list I made in my notebook. They are items on EF that are priced $30.00 and under that I really really want to try. I will NOT allow myself to ever buy one otherwise, not until I have reached my month's end goal. Mt Long Term is done the same way as my PG list, except the value for those are $60.00 and under. I do make dang sure I have the money set aside, a small bit at a time, to cover the expense. I have the option of substituting sale items I really want totaling the amount designated.

I also make sure I take 2 days off from writing reviews per week. Those days I just spend on the fun things here at EF. Basically socializing.

I write my reviews in sections sometimes. When I am not inspired, I write the cleaning and materials sections for all my reviews. Sometimes I also include my title and summary. This really cuts down on my writing time when I am doing the actual review.

If I am in a writing furiously mood, I will write 15-18 reviews and just publish 7 that day. This allows for finished reviews to wait for the next day's points. Those reviews are items I purchased that are not buy outs or regular assignments--I used all my excess reviews when my Dad was in ICU, so need to get more done!!

Hope this might help you as well!!

I used to write all the time. Everyone expected I would be a professional writer when I grew up. I planned to go into journalism and write for Rolling Stone. Somewhere along the way, that changed. I lost the love of writing that I had in my youth. Eden has given that back to me. I have written much more here than I have in 10 years or longer.
