Words and ideas form in my head into perfect sentences. I spend 20 minutes thinking about an essay that will sound thoughtful and eloquent. When I go to write it, those same words leave me. Only few parts can be written exactly as they were conjured in my mind.I have to let go and be in the moment to reform the ideas that I had. It’s much like when you anticipate saying something to someone, but it doesn’t come out the way you planned. You leave frustrated.
I’m supposed to be a writer. Someone skilled in the art of language. But why do we feel as though a person who can’t write a decent sentence, can say what he or she feels more efficiently than we can?
