Merry Christmas

Well, a Merry Christmas to everyone, and thank you for following my blog for another year. I hope you're all ready for the festive season. It's that time of year to battle with the crowds in the shops, argue with the relatives you haven't seen since last year, and cope with that sinking feeling when you suddenly calculate that in order to defrost the turkey properly you should have taken it out of the fridge last Tuesday.

Of course, to all of your writers out there this is just fodder for next year's articles, stories and other writing projects! And if you ever think that Christmas does not make a good subject matter for creative writing, then read a copy of Alan Ayckbourn's Season's Greetings. (http://www.amazon.co.uk/Seasons-Greetings-Alan-Ayckbourn/dp/0571273475/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1387731714&sr=8-1&keywords=Seasons+Greetings).

Happy Christmas ... and ...

Good luck!
