I think far too much.

I analyse far too much.

I worry far too much.

I write nowhere near enough.

I trust nowhere near enough.

I relax nowhere near enough.

And I blog about it.

  1. For a minute there, I thought you were describing me… until you got to the balding veggie…

  2. Are carnivores allowed? shuffles feet.

  3. Hello. I’ve nominated you for the Reader Appreciation Award. It’s always nice to tell people you appreciate them.

  4. Alright then, as long as you aren’t a vegan I won’t poke too much fun. (You’ll have to check out my rants to get the reference.)

  5. I can fully relate. In my case, I would add: I’m up late far too much / I sleep nowhere near enough. ;)
    For some strange reason, the style of this reminded me of the lyrics to Billie Holiday’s song “The End of A Love Affair” ( ).

    ps: Is Southampton anywhere near Blackburn, Lancashire? My maternal family tree is rooted there. Peace!

    • I’ve never been compared to Billie Holiday before! But i can see the similarity.
      Blackburn is about 250 miles north of here – the other end of the country for us but the next town for an American ;)

  6. Hey man, I’m originally from Crawley. Ever get up there?

  7. I wanted to let you know that I tagged you in the “look” challenge. There are more details in my blog post:

    I’d love to see a few passages from whatever you’re working on if you decide to participate!

  8. just checked your blog again and realised I wasn’t following you anymore somehow! WordPress is weird sometimes… Good thing I checked!

  9. Ooh, ooh, me! I wanna play in your story! I’ve been trying to do something like this with friends since High School (27 yrs. or so ago >.>) and I saw Tedstrutz latest chapter and fell in love…or giggles, same thing. So let me know if you want another player…I promise to write on time, because people will be waiting. Hrmmm. Wonder if I should do something similar with my poetry blog? Co-op poems…could be fun!

  10. I was referred to you about the fiction relay. If you want to see my writing style I am currently working on a serial story posted every Monday following Edward Hotspur’s birthday. I’m in week 2. I received many requests to continue the story after the first post, so I suggested a relay & was referred here. I notice you have a relay currently going, but would you be looking for another relay writer for the next round?

    • HI, thanks for reading! im curious who referred you here, im only an obscure little corner of WP lol!
      i was thinking of setting up a second relay, so i will let you know if i get it running :)

  11. I believe it was Hastywords who referred me.

  12. Delilah permalink

    Hey, I wanted to stop by and say how wonderful you are. Don’t feel obligated to do this because most of us don’t enjoy these things, but I was feeling bored so I did and now I am handing it to you.

    • Thanks Delilah! I’m not a big follower and passeroner of awards but I am always grateful to receive them and the kind words that go along with them, so thank you :)

  13. “I think far too much.” Me too.

    “I analyse far too much.” Me too.

    “I worry far too much.” Me too, but not so much as I once did when I had the time to spare.

    “I write nowhere near enough.” Me too.

    “I trust nowhere near enough” Most certainly, me too.

    “I relax nowhere near enough.” Definitely me too.

    “And I blog about it.” Me too.

  14. You are not alone. Me, too. :-)


  15. Hello! Nice to be at your site. Look forward to knowing you more and what you write. Is that okay with you?

  16. We broke our own rule and posted comments on the Homepage…grr. If we both delete our comments will it clean up the page?
