How David Mitchell's Stammer Shaped His Writing
"[It] was an effective if merciless boot-camp instructor. It (or 'He' as I imagined it) trained me to amass a vocabulary flexible and muscular enough to avoid words beginning with stammer-consonants, and do so on the hoof, before the other person caught on. ... What feels like a curse when you're younger can prove to be a long-term ally."
