  3. Love Melissa's comment - but my first thought was 'Oh no! This cannot be!'. To be more serious, I do know someone who is afraid of writing ... and when working with illiterate adults it was an amazing breakthrough for them to summon up the courage to write (as the reading progressed).

  4. Aguja, When I was searching for a 'word of the week' I never thought that there could be such a thing as being afraid of writing. Obviously, this is a real problem and it's great that your friend overcame their problem, to help others.
