I may have mentioned this in passing—I have a wedding coming up. We are writing our own vows. Typically when I have something important to write and have time to work on it, I end up writing something very stilted and awkward (to me, at least). What I end up producing sounds like it’s supposed to be entered in a high school essay contest. I try too hard to make the language and structure sound like it’s something its not.

That won’t fly this time. This will be the most important thing I’ve ever written. It can’t be shit.
