Writing is a really hard task for me,
one issue is the misuse of words...

This list is a good start to help you better
understand my troubles. I promise there's more
I could add...anytime I blog, and you spot this
trouble, tell me!

So if writing is so hard for me, why do I write?

A voice is a very powerful tool,
my actual heard voice gets lost in the moment,
my writing voice gives me time to really think what I need to say...

Do you easily confuse words?
Does your voice work better in words?
