I am tapping this out on my new Ipod Touch which is the closest thing to a portable computer I have ever encountered. Aren’t Xmas presents great? The keyboard is a little fiddley so please excuse the inevitable spelling mistake.
I’ve always had something against the gap between Xmas and new year. Who knows why? Maybe its the disrupted routine. Maybe its the expectation of something about to happen. Like the gap in a dramatic scene where the action changes in a direction the audience never expected. The esteemed Robert McKee claims that all drama flows from the gap. Its the space the writers mind lives in, the void where dreams and nightmares live. Maybe I should like this time more.
I’ve written a story every Xmas for the last few years. I wonder what this year will bring.
