Four things

Captain’s Log, Stardate 04.28.2006

Blog book giveaway:
My Monday book giveaway is THE REMEDY FOR REGRET and A WINDOW TO THE WORLD by Susan Meissner.
My Thursday book giveaway is MOTHER OF PREVENTION by Lori Copeland.
You can still enter both giveaways. Just post a comment on each of those blog posts. On Monday, I'll draw the winner for Susan Meissner's books and post the title for another book I'm giving away. Stay tuned.

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.
