Stratagems [Jan. 2nd, 2005|02:02 pm]
Tony Grist
The start of the new year has me feeling anxious.

All that time ahead. 365 days. How on earth shall I fill it? What are my stratagems?

We are driving to my grandparents house- a journey of an hour and a half. I am 12. Somewhere on the far side of Tunbridge Wells I fall back on a tested stratagem for dealing with boredom; I will tell myself a story. The hero is a prince. He has black hair. He is on a ship and the ship is being attacked by flying demons and- a smell of hot leatherette, a growing ache in shoulders and jaw- I slowly realise he doesn't interest me in the least.

Let the demons eat him. What do I care?

The stratagem has failed.

Hehehe. I chuckled. It reminds me of a time when I was a kid and I decided to write a science fiction. I didn't get past the first page.

But you'll be writing it one day- right?

Lucky us if some of each of these 365 days is spent posting here.

That is so true. Getting an LJ was one of my best decisions of 2004

I think so, too! (That it was one of your best decisions.)
