I mean.. If you want. Or don’t.

So I just finished the semi-biography of Eggers and although I feel decidedly argh (eta: changed meh to argh because meh does not express how long it took me to get through every _other_ section of this book. I’ve never met a person so in love and hate with himself in the most infuriating way) about the book there were some incredibly gripping sections. The book is written in a melodramatic, sweeping, chaotic, first person tone, that is exhausting can lend itself well when describing certain situations or emotions.

So I thought, why not give it a go. I can’t do it any worse. Right? (Wrong: I totally can.)

So I wrote down my fears about my relationship, as uncensored as possible, adding colour and leaving no melo-drama out. Yes this is my inner voice, yes these are things I at times think. It is not at all what I truly believe or wholly feel. It is a minor feeling that can cause discomfort, although I am ultimately, on the whole, quite happy. Especially laying here in my bathtub, feeling creatively inspired(albeit a bit dramatically so) with my draft beer next to me.

In any case I wondered if anyone was interested in an utterly melodramatic.. Essay? About feelings of fear in a young relationship, to take a gander at what I wrote. Tell me if it annoyed you or made you feel other feelingtype things. Or if you’re just wanting to go ‘get your writing critique somewhere else you twat’. Also fine!
