    >I got the blahs

    >I was in Reading most of yesterday shopping so didn’t get here.  And truthfully, when I got home, I just couldn’t be bothered. Yet again no change in my weight. I’ve had this week off of work but don’t feel rested at all, it’s actually been pretty stressful as a result of what I got asked to do today.  I am looking forward to it but differences in attitudes have stressed me out.  😈   I’m getting picked up in 10 minutes, more on that later. It’s all pretty blah at the moment anyway. 👿 All content copyright Emma Crees, 2006 – 2012 unless otherwise stated http://writerinawheelchair.blogspot.com

    >I love to laugh…. it’s getting worse every year!

One of my favourite comedians is…

And yes, I’m more than likely going to be on TV again.  It’s all really rather exciting! *squees loudly* All content copyright Emma Crees, 2006 – 2012 unless otherwise stated http://writerinawheelchair.blogspot.com

    >Writing and Weight and Fireworks

    >The good thing about doing both NaBloPoMo AND NaNoWriMo is that on days when I don’t really have any inspiration for my blog entry I just simply tell you what my NaNo word count is and witter on about that for a while. I have 3580 words for NaNo so far, I’ve set up three characters and mentioned a third and fourth. Other than that not much has happened other that a shit load of padding it out. Still, that;s half the fun. And I suddenly like what I’ve written this afternoon which is always good. I am slightly ahead of the curve at the moment but I haven’t written…
