But do you remember new terms and new school years? We never really got any work done that first day, did we? All too busy exchanging stories of the holidays and showing off our new pencil cases.
Today is no exception. I didn't plan to start haranguing you till tomorrow anyway but today I felt a bit jealous of all those people putting pictures of snow scenes on their blogs so I thought I'd do the same, even though there's no relevance to writing. No learning points at all. No application to your WIPs. To be honest, I could probably think of one - I usually do - but my head's hurting from all that partying.
I'm assuming that all of you, whatever part of the world you're in, have heard that the UK is a bit snowy at the moment? I saw a pavement today for the first time in weeks. Poor old Jane Smith is still living off mice as she hasn't been able to get out of her hovel for ages to get to the shops. [Somehow she has made an exception for Starbucks, but she is a marvel that way.]
Anyway, here are my snowy contributions:
Right, that's it: tomorrow, we work. I have no idea which of your many good ideas I'm going to choose as a topic. You'll just have to come and see - but probably not too early in the morning.
