Can't Get Past A Phrase Without
Stumbling? Thwack! Here's What To Do ...

Thwack! It happens.
I mean we don't like to admit it, but it does happen. Sometimes there's "that phrase" and you can't get past it. A phrase that you just don't say every single day.
Something like, "Taking more than the daily recommended dosage can increase the risk of stroke, heart attack or life threatening condition."
Or, "Jeb Branford the Third began his stock car career ..."
It really can be anything. And you keep coming to THAT phrase and it just slaps you in the face like a dead fish.
Thwack! (Convincing sound effect, right? Soon we'll have articles with smell-o-vision!)
WHAT TO DO?
Sometimes a change has to be extremely deliberate in order to get past the phrase that trips us up.
Thwack! (There it is again.)
Stop digging a hole in the ground with the sound to "get it right." Instead ...
Thwack! (See? There it is again!)
