This old idiom smacked me right in the nose yesterday. And, man, it smacked me hard.

Chapter One of my Cozy Mystery had stalled. I had so much to tell the readers and couldn’t figure out how to tell it succinctly.

SMACK! Idiom right in the nose.

Bottom line: Sometimes, pain is good.

Until tomorrow…
