The reason I write...
I fumble over words when I talk in English, like I'm listening to myself, and don't like what I'm hearing. In speech, there isn't the opportunity to edit, and so I correct myself, re-phrase, or explain myself, even in casual conversation with close friends when there's really no need to. Then, there are the interjections of dialect, colloquial expressions and local nuances. I'm ashamed when my words come out in such an inelegant concoction of tongues. So, I choose not to speak.
And so I write. And hope it comes out just right.
