I’m not really very good with words.
Sure, I write for a living, but that doesn’t mean I’m actually good at conveying my own thoughts with any sort of succinctness. It’s especially bad when I’m speaking the words out loud. I get caught up, tongue-tied and dry-mouthed. If I mispronounce something, I just lose my mind, apparently, because it’s all downhill from there.
The one time in my life that I felt I accurately expressed my feelings via the spoken word was the tallest order I’ve ever been given: my wedding vows.
