I have trouble saying words, I never say or can say the right ones when I need to, they come out a blurry mess.
When I write it’s easier, I take a moment, I think, and then I’m thank god for spell check.
Sometimes I’ll sit there and get frustrated because I know the word I want, but I can’t find them in my mind.
Obs…obsession, obviously….no, that’s not the word I want…
I turn to Google, I pray I can type enough information in, that I can find it, that I can use the right number of letters in a close enough order. Obserlet….what is this, these letters don’t look right.
Four or five times I try and get my brain to work,
Why can’t I do this!?
I try again…
I found it! Twenty minutes later and I’ve found the word I needed.
It’s just a straightforward word, I could have settled for a simpler word I guess, and let it hold a simpler meaning, but I don’t want to.
Words are strong.
Words are powerful!
It’s hard being a dyslexic writer, it’s painful sometimes, but in the end the hard work pays off, and it’s worth it all.
