NaNoWriMo 2011 Calendar by Kiriska NaNoWriMo 2011 Calendar by Kiriska
It's nearly that time of the year again. :3

I spent the extra time this year to make this available in a few resolutions. The wallpaper is also available with daily word count goals adding up to 100k since I got a lot of requests for that last year by overachievers. :3 I'm not going to make further adjustments to this set but you're welcomed to give me your resolution and word count preference and I'll keep them in mind for next year.

The ZIP download includes:
1024 x 768 (50k and 100k versions)
1280 x 960 (50k and 100k versions)
1440 x 900 (50k and 100k versions)
1600 x 1200 (50k and 100k versions)

Enjoy! And good luck in November!

Other years:


Photoshop.
Stock: Tambako.

I'm going to try it this month! It sounds fun. And now I'm going to print those words so I can stab them to death later. Are you going to make a 2012 calendar?

Coin flips are my one true love.
Thanks a ton for putting up this calendar; I'm sure WriMos the world over appreciate the effort you put into it.

I'm using this as my laptop background, not only does it have handy word counts and encouragement, it also has great autumn colors! Thank you very much! *goes back to writing*

I'm totally using this as my laptop background!

By the way, the suggestion on the 11th has got me thinking (even though we're not there yet) and not only am I introducing a new character, I also have a death scene planned >.>

Thank you very much! I hope this will help keep me on track!
I like how each calendar year is a bit different too, you don't just copy and paste the old one with a new background and year.
For resolutions, 1920x1080 and 1366x768 if you would be so kind!

I anticipate looking up your calendar next year!

I am exceedingly fond of your calendars, I've used them the past two years as my November wallpaper and they're just... inspiring!
I always get interesting looks when I use them as well. Mostly the good sort of look.

Anyways, since this is my third year using them, I figured I might actually comment on one for once! Thank you for doing these.

Yesss, I find this one absolutely perfect!
It's hard to find a NaNo calendar that's appealing to the eye AND useful in the tip and word count way xD

Also, I love the header quote, too true.

That's it, you officially have the best NaNoWriMo calendars. I love this design, very season-suiting and inspirational, and your tips and prompts stir my soul without making me feel like I'm stealing outdated ideas from everywhere else. I'll be using this to stay focused!

Are you participating this year? It's my first.

Wow, 9th! That's some serious accomplishment! What's your favorite novel so far?

Oh, and are you on the nano website? I could use a buddy. :< I probably won't be online to bother you most of the time, but if you'd like to act as a mentor, that would be cool.

Hahaha, I kind of have love-hate relationships with all of them. XD Right now, I might like my 2010 novel the best, even if I didn't finish it. x3

And here I am on the site! I can't promise to be too inspiring though. XD

I will do my best to churn out a competitive word count to make you feel good/bad about being ahead/behind! *salute*

And love/hate because most of them didn't turn out very satisfactory and I have always been really awful about going back through to edit. 2010 is my favorite right now because I feel it's the most salvageable, or at least, writing it really helped me sort out a lot of things about the universe the story takes place in. My novel this year will be in the same universe, but I'll be focusing on different/new characters. I'm pretty excited about it!

Sounds like a plan! *returns salute*

Ah, that makes sense. That's a good idea--that way you already know the world you're in, and you just have new characters to explore it! Last year sounds like a satisfactory warm-up for the success you'll have this year.

Would you mind if I featured this on my writing tumblr, help4writers?

I'm doing an entire special on NaNoWriMo this month in which I plan to help those struggling to plot their novel by featuring ideas from Victoria Lynn Schmidt's "Book in a Month", and I would love to feature this NaNo calendar at some point.
