The sticky smoke like grasping fingers of the old year are trying to reach into the new before it even starts.
I'm not going to let it. This is a sparkly New Year with opportunities and adventures just waiting to be had.
I am going to write a screenplay for television, something I used to do long ago, and have had refused on many occasions. There was also one time one of my scripts had been plagurised by the TV company that I sent it to, and it was turned into a series sitcom. It was strange to see the little adventures I had written from my life being played out in front of my eyes with the credit given to someone else who didn't know me and wasn't there when these funny things happened to me.
Working for the BBC had it's downside, "STAFF NO FEE" was one of them. Anything you wrote, discovered, appeared in was upaid. You just got a little docket that said "Staff - no fee".
So the New Year awaits and I am going to grasp the hand of fate and give it a good shake and ask it to be kind to me this year.
