    Rotation Curation for #Disability #rocur

    I’ve been curating the @OxfordIsYours twitter account.  It’s a RoCur (Rotation Curation) account for Oxford and the person who runs it said living in Oxfordshire counts. Basically RoCur is where there’s an account (often on twitter) where people take a week at a time to run it and share their experiences and tweet on the subject.  Most of these relate to places – like with Oxford Is Yours I’ve been tweeting about where I’ve been and what I’ve done – but some relate to hobbies or jobs or organisations or anything else. I’ve been enjoying it and have learned about a place in Oxford I’m going to visit soon I…

    I’ve been wondering…

    A Thursday Thirteen list of things I’ve been pondering lately: …who invented chips? …does anyone ever use just one piece of loo roll? …why does one of my powerchair tires have zero tread left but the one on the other side still has a little? …why are knickers called knickers? …when will John Green bring another book out? …how long is too long to wear a bra before washing? …will I ever get sent another appointment to see my neurologist if I don’t chase him? …what shall I read next? …what does mono printing involve exactly? …do I need my antidepressant dose increasing? …how long my soon to start second…

    >Ask Me Anything

    >Haven’t done one of these in a while so I figured it might be fun to do one now. Plus I just thought of a question I’d love to ask another blogger but for the fact it’s off topic to their blog and irrelevant.  That got me thinking that maybe people had things they wanted to ask me but never had… Ask me whatever you want and I’ll answer in an upcoming blog entry (so long as I’m comfortable doing so, although I don’t expect that to be a problem). And seeing as one of my last entries was about going to see the neuro physio I’ll save myself from…

    >Books with disabled characters?

    >One of my friends sent me a tweet today asking if I knew of any fantasy books with either a disabled main character or a disabled character who plays a decent role and isn’t a token crip sort of thing.  I was very pleased because she’s able-bodied.  That normally wouldn’t be a “yes, pleased” thing but I’ve been reading a few articles writen on news sites about disability today (by disabled people) which are absolutely full of missed the point comments about disability by able-bodied people. Some of which were downright insulting and some were just stupid but most were frustrating.  So being asked for book recs is, in a…

    >And now for something completely different…

    >…only I’m not really sure what that might be. Up two this week.  I’m definitely plateauing and need to do something different to shake things up.  I’ve got one or two small ideas but really I’m stuck on which is the best one.  Probably all of them in moderation but I’m also struggling a bit with my depression over the last few days and that really doesn’t help.

    >Is there anything you wish everyone knew about disability or something you’d like to see in the school curriculum?

    > (via formspring.me) Is there anything you wish everyone knew about disability or something you’d like to see in the school curriculum?  [This probably sounds like a stupid question, but I think a lot of people are just ignorant, rather than disablist] That’s a pretty tough one to answer. It’s pretty much impossible to come up with stuff that everyone should know about disability because there’s such a wide range of disabilities. And also such a variation with the same type of disability between person to person. Even us crips don’t know everything about disability as a whole – we know about our condition and how it affects us personally.…

    >Because I am ever so slight obsessed with all thing Superman at the moment (and also somewhat shallow) I thought I’d take a poll. Who is the best looking Superman? Christopher Reeve?

    >Questions Welcome

    >If you could ask me one question about anything at all, what would you ask? I’ve been thinking lately that I’d like to share more of my experiences so that all of my hard won knowledge of life, the universe and everything (or at least the stuff I know about) can be put to some use. It’s all been worth it but this might just make it more worth it. And also it might give me more constructive things to do. So… ask away All content copyright Emma Crees, 2006 – 2012 unless otherwise stated http://writerinawheelchair.blogspot.com

    >Opinions Wanted

    >I got an e-mail about NaNoWriMo today! I knew it was coming up but I hadn’t really realised that the festivities kick off so soon – sign ups start 1st Oct! I have half of a badly thought out fiction idea that I could do. Or I could write my life story. Both are projects I’ve written a few words of and abandoned time and again for more years than I can count. So… which do YOU think I should write?

    >How would you define

    >Cross-posted pretty much everywhere on the Internet OK because I was wondering… How would you define Healthy? Disabled? Ill? Disadvantaged? Suffer/Suffering? And other like terms.What do you think when people ask what your illness is or if you are bothered by being around “healthy” people? Do people ask you those sort of questions or am I the only person blessed in that way? All content copyright Emma Crees, 2006 – 2012 unless otherwise stated http://writerinawheelchair.blogspot.com
