I wish I was the type of person who could create a masterpiece in a matter of moments; rather than slave over something for hours and still not have it quite right.
I wish I had the ability to make words my soldiers; have them form whatever battalion I commanded them to, and call me "Lieutenant."
I wish I could be proud of the armies I train; instead of continuously hating the strategies they impose with which words and phrases they struggle so hard to be.
I wish I could feel the thrill of having twenty-four hours of fame; and actually deserving such an honor.
But most of all?
I wish I didn't have all these ambitions and longings; because I just wish I could be satisfied with the mediocre ambassador of vocabulary that I am.
