Knitting and Books - sheer heaven

I've had a day off today - they were forecasting this to be the busiest retail day of the holiday season so quite how I managed to score a day off I'm not sure, but I wasn't complaining. I'm off tomorrow too so will get some serious knitting done, and will take photos, honest!

I got to go to S&B in Birmingham, and I went to the remaindered bookstore and bought a couple of books, and I even bought a little bit of wool (Who, me? Wool? No, that wasn't me!). Photos tomorrow I promise.

There's not much to blog about apart from that but I wanted to point you in the direction of yesterday's great post by Ms Knitingale. It had me giggling all day, thinking about it. She's so funny. I wish I could write comedy like her.

Talking of writing, my short story didn't win the WWC competition, but it was a close contender apparently. If anyone would like to read it send me an email and I'll forward it to you as it's way too long to post on the blog.

You could set up another blog just for your creative writing. I am not sure if Blogger allows "continuation sheets" yet, but you can have a Wordpress blog for free and they have continuation sheet. So you just put the intro or synopsis on the post, and put the actual story on the next page (continuation sheet).
Email me if you want to discuss --- maxineLclarke at gmail dot com

I have a couple of wordpress blogs and they are a pretty good blog hoster.

PS well done on the day off!
