Tag 4 Friends you think will respond

• ALL OF YOU RESPOND! Post in the comments section when you have your own list on your blogs.


Writing: Aaaargh! I can't believe it's the 28th already! I'm working hard on my manuscript, but I wish I wrote faster! I'm trying to finish by mid-May--that's my self-imposed deadline.

Diet: Aaaargh! God, please give me more self-control and discipline!



  2. Camy, I'm going to miss my April 30th deadline too. But I'm hoping to make it by May 15th... or 31st.

    Love your list. But now I'm hungry.

  3. I hear your "argh" under the diet heading...this week has been AWFUL and I have no one but myself to blame. Sigh. Well...tomorrow is another day (thank God!!). :) Have a great weekend!

  4. I've been sleep-logged this week. I discovered this morning that I forgot to take my medication twice this week--for the whole day. No wonder I'm drifting.

    Too bad I never get tagged. But then, my comments are long enough already. I still feel down. I guess I shouldn't be surprised.

    Hope you make your deadline soon. Hmm, can't really think tonight. I hope I made a little more sense in the e-mail yesterday.

  5. This comment has been removed by a blog administrator.

  6. I did this on March 4th over on my blog. If you can wade through the mesh you'll find it. I had more to it than you did.

    I'm there with ya girlfriend. I was finally FINALLY able to sit down and write out by hand more on my WIP. I don't even know how much I have written, but I'm plugging away at it again tonight.

    It'll come, give it time.

  7. Wait a minute, sister...I didn't see Alias on that list. We only have 4 shows left and you've already ditched 'em. Sigh. What kind of fan are you. =) LOL.

No Cold Bums toilet seat cover

Captain's Log, Stardate 08.22.2008 I actually wrote out my pattern! I was getting a lot of hits on my infamous toilet seat cover , and I wanted to make a new one with “improvements,” so I paid attention and wrote things down as I made the new one. This was originally based off the Potty Mouth toilet cover , but I altered it to fit over the seat instead of the lid. Yarn: any worsted weight yarn, about 120 yards (this is a really tight number, I used exactly 118 yards. My suggestion is to make sure you have about 130 yards.) I suggest using acrylic yarn because you’re going to be washing this often. Needle: I used US 8, but you can use whatever needle size is recommended by the yarn you’re using. Gauge: Not that important. Mine was 4 sts/1 inch in garter stitch. 6 buttons (I used some leftover shell buttons I had in my stash) tapestry needle Crochet hook (optional) Cover: Using a provisional cast on, cast on 12 stitches. Work in garter st until liner measures

Year of the Dog serial novel, chapter 5

I’m posting a Humorous Christian Romantic Suspense serial novel here on my blog! Year of the Dog is a (second) prequel to my Warubozu Spa Chronicles series. Year of the Dog serial novel by Camy Tang Marisol Mutou, a professional dog trainer, is having a bad year. While renovating her new dog kenneling and training facility, she needs to move in with her disapproving family, who have always made her feel inadequate—according to them, a job requiring her to be covered in dog hair and slobber is an embarrassment to the family. She convinces her ex-boyfriend to take her dog for a few months … but discovers that his brother is the irate security expert whose car she accidentally rear-ended a few weeks earlier. Ashwin Keitou has enough problems. His aunt has just shown up on his doorstep, expecting to move in with him, and he can’t say no because he owes her everything—after his mother walked out on them, Aunt Nell took in Ashwin and his brother and raised them in a loving Christ
