NaNoWriMo day 1

Captain's Log, Supplemental

Today’s the day! It’s the start of NaNoWriMo 2007!!!

You can check my progress on my NaNoWriMo profile page (you might need some patience, sometimes the website is a bit slow). However, last year I didn’t update consistently, so be warned.

If you're doing NaNoWriMo this year, add me as a buddy! Just click on my profile page above. My username is camytang.

This year, I’m working on an Asian American Christian chick lit young adult novel (long enough description?). I’m pretty busy this month, so I hope I can finish this year.

I think I use NaNo as an excuse to stock up on snacks. I am well-armed. I have:
dark chocolate M&Ms
taro chips
dried fruit and nut mix
ginger beer
lots and lots of different types of tea (I got to go bonkers at my favorite tea shop, Lupicia, in Ala Moana mall in Hawaii)
lemon cookies (although technically, those belong to Captain Caffeine because he specifically asked my mom’s cousin Dale to bake those for him).

What are your comfort snack foods? Maybe I can get new ideas for snacks that will muster my creativity!


  1. My favorite snack in the whole world is this: Ritz crackers dotted with cottage cheese sprinkled with Lawry's seasoning salt.

    Sounds gross but the texture and flavor are awesome.

    Don't knock it till you've tried it.

  2. I'm so excited about NaNo and all the people doing it this year!

  3. I got some in-shell peanuts, walnuts, and hazelnuts (in shell means I have to stop and crack them open, so am less likely to overindulge). I also got some sugar-free chocolate meringue drops for when I just NEED chocolate. I have some Baby Bell cheese snacks, baby carrots, Ambrosia apples, and a big bag of oranges.

    I have a huge selection of teas, along with some mocha-flavored Splenda to fancy-up coffee.

    Can you tell I'm trying to be good? After the pain I went through at the gym last night, my second time doing the strength-training circuit, I knew I couldn't sabotage myself with what I really wanted to get--which was all of the Halloween candy they were marking down while I was at the store last night. :-(

  4. November is a really hard time of the year to attempt this but I wish you the best of luck.

    My new fav comfort food is M & M's Razzleberry. Talk about wonderful...
