The almost New Year Resolution This is my writing den. It has a wonderful view over the Tyne Valley which is supposed to encourage me to raise my eyes from the computer every 20/30,minutes or so, which is the recommended time span for gazing at a computer screen. Sadly it doesn’t work. I get so engrossed in my plot that only when my character does something abnormal and stops my fingers from pounding over the keys am I forced to look up and begin living in the moment instead of in 30AD. However, my New Year Resolution is not to worry about it but to buy a new pair of specs, water the plant and keep my den tidy. That, at least, I think I can do.
