    I Have a Plan.

    Each day, look at the experiences waiting stories. If I can't choose which one, take the first. Will I ever catch up? We'll see.

    The Main Reason

    i've fallen behind is because i find awesome groups i want to join but sometimes put off writing the stories to go with them. then before i know it, i'm way more behind than i'd like to be. at last count, i have around 130 to go before i'm on top of things. i'm thinking christmas...

    Nothing Like A Rear-end In Front To Get Ya Motivated!

    Well I gotta hustle since there was no point in joining said groups if I was not going to contribute to them. Some have been sitting for a while with no stories or comments. I figure if you have the stones to create them you should have enough backbone to write something in the...

    Behind Or Burried

    I am more than behind, I'm half buried in Experiences with no stories. I actually surprised myself when I looked to see what I needed to write on yet.  I knew I was behind some, but I didn't know it had gotten this bad.  And, it's more than just on writing stories...

    Maybe Because I Want to Share Stories That Make Sense..

    I don't want to write stories just to write stories.. I want to write stories to help others or to spread my word. But if nothing good comes to my mind when I join a group I don't feel bad about not writing a story. Maybe it's even better that I don't write a story in every...

    Time To Pick The Pineapples??

    So why is it so hard for me to write my stories? I think i have it figured out. For someone who is suffering from so much anxiety and self-doubt, these stories mean looking at who i am and getting rid of all the hurting bits; it's like therapy. It's like purging and that's...

    It's Too Complicated

    There are some people on EP who know how to pace themselves and collect just enough experiences so that they can get around to writing stories for each one. I have a few in my circle who follow this trail and are doing very well at it, to my surprise. But for me, it's more...

    Wayy Behind

    Sometimes it is just hard to find the words to express what I feel about an experience. Sometimes it is difficult to explain. Sometimes I just don't feel like talking. Sometimes I lack motivation, due to my depression.I must try harder.~Hobo

    Realized Today. "Gulp"!

    451 experiences - 41 stories. I'm not reaching for my calculator,but I don't need it to tell me that is not an especially healthy ratio. That said,if people will talk to me,and invite comment... I'll catch up when I'm ready - hope it's worth waiting for.

    Way Behind

    I already know there are groups that I will never write stories for, for various reasons, but if I were to even attempt it, it would take me forever. Of the 725 experiences I have at this time, I would have to write 483 stories (482 after I submit this one). I'm not sure how many...
