Today's Writing Prompt: Too much

What good thing could you have too much of?

One-Minute Writing of the Day:
Writer: that girl

Candy corn.

Congratulations, that girl! I love your simplicity and humor. And I agree--candy corn is awesome, but I know from experience (year after year) it is possible to eat too much of the yummy stuff. Feel free to put a One-Minute Writer WINNER! button on your blog!

Money, money and more money!

Proverbs 27:19 said...


When I have "too much" time I tend to get in trouble. I over committ myself, spend too much time doing brainless activities or just sit there wishing that I had even more time because I may have "wasted" it doing something silly


Gina said...

Sorry ... I can't think of a single thing that I wouldn't want too much of. If I had too much money or too much food, I could give it away to those who need it. If I had too much fun or too much luck, I simply be blessed. If I had too much love ... well, you get the point.

I think as writers if we had too much time, we'd never actually write anything.

The key to getting some writing done is the mind-numbing panic of a deadline whizzing past your ears.

Power. Too much power and influence attributed to the Holocaust. Too much Power made it take a long time to abolish the slave trade. Too much power is what keeps Illegal Human Trafficking going. Too much power can detroy a person, group, or nation. Too much power is never a good thing.

When James went to his Camera Club meetings Lauren would watch 'Collectors' on TV. She'd hiss at the smug collectors of everything from navel fluff to old tractors.
'Does your wife dust all those things?'
'How can your husband live with that stuff?'
She would look around her home. Hundreds of cameras were lined up on shelves and in cabinets - old, interesting and valuable.
'Too much! It's too much!' she would cry.

Bacon! It's the most amazing food ever but too much can be harmful :(

SZQS said...

Pretty much anything anyway, except love. I can't think how you could have too much love.
Of course, no matter how much of something you have, if you make good use of it, then it's not too much. Like sharing excess food.

Comfortability....too much of it can make you stagnate, then you look up one day and realize you have been in the same spot forever.

A good book.

Uninterrupted time.

Alone time with my DVR and TV.

The chocolate chip cookie in my other hand while I'm pecking with one hand.

A child's laughter. The giggles, the wonder, the joy unmeasured. I can never get enough of that!
