I am sorry for your sense of a barrier. I am very good at editing and revising--in fact, that is a task I enjoy more than you will ever know--but my first drafts really are atrocious, I concede. When I'm thinking out loud my only objective is not stylistic but simply to capture ideas in the most logical manner that I can; and often the initial result comes across as sounding stilted...but that is never my intent.
