I have never been diagnosed with ADD. I was a few years older than those who started to be seen that way .. and I was never hyperactive enough to get Ritalin prescribed to me or anything like that. I just have trouble focusing, and dealt better when I can float between different things. I actually do better work when there is chaos in the air and my thoughts scatter. I'm pretty sure I would be diagnosed now with Adult ADD if I wanted to be checked out.
Its why I really SUCK at writing stories, but pretty skilled at things like lyric writing and small creative bursts like captions. Trust me, I wish I could take most of my captions and flesh them out into a nice long juicy story, like Belladonna/Sarine does. I have written a few, and they probably would make really good short caption series, like perhaps 3 panels. I was writing TG captions before there WERE such a thing as TG captions LOL I don't think I cracked 1000 words in any of them!
This caption was worse for me though .. as I ended up ADDing right in the middle of the story. I will cut and paste what I wrote when I posted this to Victoria Hyde's trading folder, and elaborate some.
So much time and so little to do. Wait a minute. Strike that. Reverse it.Yes, it does seem jarring to me, but yet in my brain it works. My thoughts went on a tangent and I couldn't reel it back in. Even worse, though I had no real resolution to the caption, THIS seemed like the best way to finish it.
Ummm, yeah. This caption is a perfect example of my ADD and my predilection for pop culture. Please read the caption first.
I started out with a basic premise of welcoming your into our little clique of dommes/malevolent forces (like with Simone and I) as I like what you write. From there, I thought it would make a good caption to set it in a corporation with an older woman picking a protege .. who runs the business and has many men/sissies under her thumb between both her public and private life. I don't recall that plot line nearly as much as most of the TG things that have come before. Suddenly though, it went from that idea into some sort of perverted Willy Wonka styled transferal of power .. involving the golden dildo, which signifies who has control. I really liked the idea and used a take on the speech that Gene Wilder gives Charlie in the glass elevator.
I guess in one way, I like it because when I was young, Willy Wonka was a TG dream to me. If he could make a piece of gum turn a girl into a blueberry, he CERTAINLY could make a candy bar that could make me a girl, right? Almond Joys got nuts, Mounds don't! If only I could be Veruca Salt .. the little spoiled bitch that got everything she wanted and made everyone cower, all the while being cute and stylish!
Anyway, I am not sure that this caption is coherent enough to be .. umm good! Perhaps its OK, but there might be too much CONCENTRATED "DEE" in there for it to function as a typical everyday caption. Damn, I don't think this caption even fits into any of my current tags!
DISCUSSION QUESTION: If you could obtain any certain element of another captioners skills to make your own captions better, who and what would it be?
