Counting sheep

On the days when I’m not writing I get anxious that I’ve lost my command of language, that next time I try words will fail me. After reading millions of words written by other people, my own always seem inept, squeezed in my brain like sheep in a pen, baaing for attention, but when I open the gates for them, they scatter across the pastures of my mind, meaningless.

How will I ever call them back and line them up in the right order to tell the stories that I want to tell?
