when i write anything on paper i have trouble writing the letters 's' and 'c' most of the time. when i get to those letters my hand sort of glitches or pauses and half a second later i can continue on writing them. however, when i do, i do it extremely fast, almost uncontrolably

  • Could be some type of tic disorder or a mental association with that letter. A friend was telling me that she can't write Ds because her mother began to berate her when she was 6 years old practicing her letter. At 40, she still has problems with the Ds. So, could be an association. You could try hypnosis. There is something called graphaphobia, too, and you might have a little of that...it is what dyslexia is for reading; it is dyslexia for writing.
