Whoever said writing is easy deserves a punch in the face. No kidding.

You know shit hit the fan when you catch yourself saying: “I’m loss for words.” Uhm, excuse me, what? You're never supposed to be a loss for words as someone whose primary occupation is hitting the keyboard all day, every day. Or on a trusted 9–5 basis for the most fortunate of us.
