I can't see what is happening in the story. My imagination won't let me visually what is going on in the story. My mind is cluttered which makes me unable to visually read books. I can read the words but I can't see anything that is happening. If the writer of a story is trying to show me something that requires my imagination, I can't do it. My mind is too busy and distracted to let me do it. I only get telling instead of showing.

When I'm not reading or writing, my imaginations are vivid and clear, but only for my stories.

So, basically what was discussed in that thread. Did you have a look at it? It might prove useful.

Anyhow, what I said earlier still stands: you can't write if you can't read. It seems you can read just fine, so you're good, though.

I have not. I'm still writing that's why.

yea I know what you mean, sounds like you're a creative person

I think the mind is naturally ungoverned and is all over the place, I think you have to try and discipline yourself to take things one step at a time and have confidence while you are taking your time.

Thank you.

I try but it's just too much.

Have you've tried medication? You might have ADD. I'm not trying to be funny, but if your thoughts are always racing to the point that you can't focus on what's in front of you...something may be needed to slow your thoughts down. I'm not a writer, and I have problems describing things just like you. Personally, I can think of at least on author who wrote without concern for grammar that our grade school class read. If your work is entertaining...you will find an audience. Focus on your strengths. Personally, I don't treat real life as an academic paper, and even if I did the conversation wouldn't be as personal.

Thank you. I do take medications but things still feel somewhat the same.

I'm more concern with showing not telling than grammar now. It's sad.
