Yay! I won NaNoWriMo

Captain's Log, Stardate 12.01.2010

I came in at 50,080 words as of around 8:30 pm on November 30th!

I was working on my next manuscript for Zondervan, which is about a girl who is ex-Japanese mafia—she’s niece to the San Francisco yakuza boss and she goes to jail for a crime she didn’t commit. She finds Jesus in jail and now she’s out of prison, trying to walk the straight and narrow (and somehow find a job) with her uncle wanting her to work for him again and everybody else distrusting her because of her past. Cool, huh? It’ll be out next year in October. I don’t have a title yet, but I’ll post here when I do!

Anyone else did NaNoWriMo? How'd you do? Tell me about your story!


  1. Congratulations! That is awesome and your story sounds wonderful!

    I did NaNo, but didn't win. I did make it up to 30,000 words, which is excellent for me, a full time working gal. I'm happy with the progress.

  2. I tried again this year too... Made it it 28k. Further than last year at least. (I've decided that November is the WORST time of the year for NaNoWriMo, btw. Too much else going on!!)

  3. Congratulations!! I really like the book idea, can't wait for the new book to come out. :)

  4. I love the new story line. It is interesting and different. Congratulations!

  5. The story sounds very interesting!

    Congrats on winning NaNo! It DEFINITELY isn't easy. I did it with 50,506. The sad thing is I hate most of what I wrote!

  6. Congratulations Camy! That's great and I can't wait to read your new book- I'm already intrigued!

  7. So do you actually win something or just the satisfaction of having written that much?

  8. Congratulations Camy! Your story sounds very interesting. I'm looking forward to reading it next year!

  9. I participated in NaNoWriMo this year, but I only made it to about 13,000 words. I just didn't know enough about my novel, and apparently I'm not a very good pantser.

    But I am very proud that I did that much in such a short amount of time. It's more than I've ever written on just one story. I'm going to work on an outline for next year, and next year, I will win.

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

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
