New Year Resolution of a Writer

31st December 2015, 12:00AM

"Honey, I promise to spend more time with you in the new year. No late night reading and writing, no...I meant...less of literary workshops and events. I really mean it darling!"

"Aww. That's you nice of you sweet heart. I love you darling. I love you more than my life."

"Love you honey!"

Lights off!

His cell phone rings.


"Have you left??"

"Left? (Thinking) Left for what, honey? I was just finishing the last chapter..."


"I'm waiting at the cafe for you and you're busy with your reading??! It hasn't been even 2 days and you forgot you New Year Resolution??!," said his loving wife, his honey, his darling.

"No honey, I was just just..."

There's no one at the other end of the call. He looks into the mirror.

"Happy New Year, Mr.Writer!"
