    The simplest and clearest way of saying these things is to use the words you have used.

    "The Writer was unable to deliver his message."

    or I am talking to some one and I can't tell him what I really mean.

    Is "deliver message" a natural phrase?
    Can you recommend something now?

    'I asked the desk clerk to deliver a message to the manager.'

    You could say: "I can't get my meaning/point across".
