I may have mentioned this in passingâ€”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 itâ€™s supposed to be entered in a high school essay contest. I try too hard to make the language and structure sound like itâ€™s something its not.
That wonâ€™t fly this time. This will be the most important thing Iâ€™ve ever written. It canâ€™t be shit.
