    Default Re: help with expression

    The second and third phrases are clearly wrong. The first phrase is somewhat stilted but acceptable. Assuming you have met the person, I would leave out "to you" because it is obvious from the context of the sentence.

    Try this: "I am writing to express my great desire of successfully performing the..."

    Or this: "I am writing to express my great desire to successfully perform the..." if the task has not yet been performed.
