Is this usage the same in negative sentences?

I want to say "I have not written since December.  Is this the correct way to say that: Je n’écris pas depuis décembre.

This question relates to:
French lesson "Using 'depuis' (since / for) with Le Présent and NOT Le Passé Composé (prepositions of time)"

Doesn't that contradict what's said in the lesson below?

Using Le Passé Composé or Le Présent in negative sentences with ''depuis''

I think you're right Alan.  I hadn't seen that lesson.  My sentence does use "ne...pas", which according to the lesson you cited requires Passé Composé.
