Writing Can Be a Bitch

'What a bitch of a thing prose is!'
--Gustave Flaubert. We figure that if even the author of the masterpiece Madame Bovary had cause to occasionally rage against the difficulties of wielding his pen, who are we to complain? You can review our lone earlier mention of the late French novelist here.

If you can find a photo of him working at a computer, I'm positive it would fetch lots of money, Rita. And we missed you at the Shaker Country Club event this evening, by the way. Or perhaps you were there but I missed spotting you amid the sea of humanity.
