Last year was a difficult year for me; I know we all have them, so I hope to help you get through yours. You see all things pass, not necessarily for better or worse, life is a moving journey and either the scenery changes or you change or both.

I am one of those people that suffer from, that thing we like to call 'just one more'. Yes I am that person who will set out to watch just one episode and five hours later at 2 in the morning I will still be there watching and hanging off every word a character says.

At the risk of sounding all "Eeh, in my day it were all fields around here", which is never a good look, (especially when the day you're talking about was only about a decade ago), I think what the new generation of filmmakers need more than anything else is some obstacles.

The cold weather that meant you had to change into a warmer coat, which then made you late. And who knows what this little delay in your schedule caused you to miss, maybe a bad bout of traffic, maybe an accident? Perhaps as the result of this you met a lady at the bus stop who you wouldn't usually see. Maybe she inspired you?

Most of us struggle to last a week on a new regime before sliding back into bad old habits. We lack the staying power to make deep and lasting changes in our lives. What we really want when the clock strikes midnight on New Year's Eve is a quick fix.

What does Gove want us back to? He wants young people today to get bogged down in minutiae of detail and take their eye off the goal.
