Sometimes it's easier just to put it on paper 179 People

    I Write Like A Fool, But I Talk Like An Idiot.

    I have always been a poor speaker. I stutter, and I have another speech-impediment. It's even worse when I get nervous. Also, I have been told that my inflections are all wrong, and that I have no facial expressions, both making it almost impossible for me to strike up, or keep a...

    How I Envy Those People...

    My thoughts on paper although organized, articulate, and understandable are completely lost when spoken. I have a clear image of how to make someone understand what I mean but when my mouth opens I stammer in trying to replace my thoughts with inteligable words. When I speak my...

    Blank pages rustling in the wind.

    Dead leaves fall and the cold bites deep. My fingers are numb as I try to make the pen form Comprehensible words. The last letter is created in the forge of autumn, Underneath the frostbitten hand of a soulless creature. The wind picks up and I look through the trees at the...

    the thoughts go to the keyboard,

    not to my tongue, and when I see it I can edit it if it isn't what I meant to say. I love refining, and being precise, usi g the exact words I need. I get frustrated because I keep inviting my husband to interact with me in writing. but he isn't a writer. he's barely a talker...

    Writing Has Whiting

    When you write...you can contemplate. You can erase, and rewrite, and erase, and rewrite. Words are words once they've been said. Words can easily start a fight
