Why is it that I can put my words to paper, but my voice prevents me from actually saying so much?

I think if you can solve that, introverts around the world will thank you. ;)

Funny you should ask that... I just posted a blog full of things that I can't say to my brother.
I think that it's just easier to think of a forum like a blog as anonymous. Even though it's not. Because I totally know who you are, missy. But I think it feels that way when you're not face to face. Plus, you can go back and fix anything you misspoke or weren't super eloquent about before anyone ever sees it.

It's true, that blogging makes for some anonymity. I am careful about who I tell about my blog, in my realtime not computer world. I feel shy about it.

But you know, I can send a letter or an email and say things I mean that I could just never bring to voice. I think it's a shyness, maybe? An unwanting to bear myself so completely. Or to have to be so open and then process their reaction too. Now, that sounds almost selfish. I guess I need to think more on this.

I think it also has something to do with the fact that when you write, you have more time to reflect and choose your words carefully. You can feel more confident because you can craft the sentence until it speaks your thought precisely.

When you speak, whatever comes out will... you know... just come out.
