I am writing a report for work, and I am finding it difficult. I know the ideas that I want to convey, but finding the right words is beyond me. And then there is the problem of getting the tone just right. It needs to sound academic-y, but it also needs to be easy to read because it will be released to the media and if it is too boring, no one will read it. Ugh.
I feel like this everytime I write a report (this happens frequently in my job). My favourite way to describe it is ‘drawing blood from a stone’.
So now I will just return and draw blood from that stone, stare blankly at my screen and then write and then rewrite one sentence at a time until everything comes together.
How come Sam and Toby could write so easily in the West Wing? If only I was like them, but less fictional.
