Does anybody have difficulty in expressing their thoughts in written form? I mean i can form an argument in my head; I can read perfectly fine, but when i want to write something, my mind goes blank. all the vocabularies i know disappear from my pathetic head and not know what to say. Why am i like this? Do i have brain damage or something? It happens to 3 languages i know. I've read many books from grammar, philosophy to fiction. yet, nothing seems to fix this shit. It appears i am destined to be spectator,lurker.. I wonder if someone here feels the same.
I know that feel man. It happens to me a lot, so now I've resigned myself to it, I don't really pay attention anymore. Instead of retaining the long sentences, I focus on the idea itself and end up with a kind of punchline, the substance of the sentence and the idea behind it. Three or four punchy words. If I try to write a long, structured sentence, my mind goes faster than my hand and I end up with a blank page. It played tricks on me in high school when I had to write essays in philosophy for example. I like to write but I have to be content with prose or maxims. The feeling of thinking is often enough on its own. All books will end in silence anyway. Here is a cute seal.

>>6777 forget the seal.
>>6777 >I focus on the idea itself and end up with a kind of punchline, the substance of the sentence and the idea behind it. Three or four punchy words. It's good idea in general even if you're a good writer. it's better to convey your message with just few words rather than a wall of text. Thanks for the seal.
>it's better to convey your message with just few words rather than a wall of text. It depends. Sometimes a catchy and powerful sentence fits better the idea, sometimes a sentence could be long to express more subtleties and for the only pleasure to play with the words and their musicality.
>>6783 Definitely you're right. I agree
God, I thought i was the only one who experienced this. I always suspected it was just another symptom of my mental illness.
>>6793 I am glad i am not the only one, some can relate here. >I always suspected it was just another symptom of my mental illness. Which mental illness do you have? I hope you're doing fine. Not officially diagnosed with anything, but i suspect i am not mentally stable either, otherwise i would have had a normal life.
>>6776 I can write quite well but I have this issue with speaking. I suspect it's autism but idk. I'm trying to get tested so I can give others a better idea of what I have.
>>6799 Same here.
Before writing something, try writing some bullet points that are related to the topic you want to discuss. The bullet points don't even have to make much sense, but they make it easier to start writing. Also, try keeping a journal (just record what's in your mind, it doesn't have to make any sense to other people).
>>6839 Good idea. I'll start practicing doing what you said and see if it helps. Thanks for the suggestion
>>6776 I feel the same way, but with creative writing. Currently trying to develop a game, but I just can't because I cannot seem to formulate a plot that makes sense, even after reading so many books and taking the most extensive English classes :>
>>6848 >Currently trying to develop a game, but I just can't because I cannot seem to formulate a plot that makes sense, even after reading so many books and taking the most extensive English classes :> Nice , what kind of game are you trying to make? did you ask for help maybe in discord or xmpp public chat rooms? they may help you with this or recruiting a team.
