- 1 So he's had a couple of flops, well, who hasn't?
- 2You have a new book in mind?
- 3Of course he does!
- 4My lamp's gone out, I've ran out of ideas.
- 5Are we in trouble?
- 6No, of course not.
- 7I have told you not to disturb me when I am working.
- 8On Christmas Eve, the spirits pour into the night.
- 9Well here, Mr. Dickens, pickpockets, streetwalkers, humbug...
- 10Those people don't belong in books.
- 12How do you make a world come alive, I could almost see and hear them people?
- 13Even if you've already written it, we couldn't possibly get it printed and distributed...
- 14...in only six weeks.
- 15If I can't finish it, I'll never write again.
- 16The characters won't do what I want.
- 17I'm the author here.
- 19A jolly ghost?
- 20What's that mean?
- 21This season of hope, we will shut out nothing and everyone will be welcome.
- 22I have to get to the printers by nine o'clock.
- 23But you still don't have an ending.
- 24Merry, merry Christmas to one and all.
- 25Merry Christmas!
