There are a few reasons I like writing more than anything:
- It allows me to daydream as much as I want
- I can work through problems in a creative way
- and I can redo my work many times to make it ready for the public.
Speaking is different. Speaking is all first draft, and as we all know: first drafts suck.
So if you meet me and want to discuss something important or upsetting, expect a lot of blank stares and shaky-handed eye coverings as I struggle for the right words.
"I just ... I mean ... I can't... I ..." sigh. Head shake.
