2010 Bylines Daily Calendars are Going . . . Going . . .


Do you use a daily or weekly calendar? I've used this one for years. Yes, I know it's June and people usually buy calendars in December or January, but Snowflake Publishing is beginning production of their 2011 edition of Bylines Daily Calendar, and they are cleaning house.

This discount will be mentioned in next weekend's FundsforWriters, but since my blog readers are loyal enough to read FundsforWriters throughout the week via Blogger, we are offering this discount early to them. If existing inventory runs out, the weekend FundsforWriters readers won't even know about it! Lucky you!

The 2010 edition of Bylines Desk Calendar features writers from 26 states and 4 foreign countries (Ireland, Great Britain, Australia and Canada). This is the 7th edition.

Last year's celebrity desk belonged to Mark Twain. The "celebrity desk" on the 2010 cover is that of Will Rogers, who many think of as a humorist; however he actually wrote over 2 million words, mostly in newspapers. He had a weekly syndicated newspaper column for many years, and also had a shorter daily newspaper column (5 days/week). Somehow, he managed to juggle that with making 71 movies, performing as a trick roper, and raising four kids. The cover is a photo of a replica of the writing desk in his study.

Not your ordinary daytimes, Bylines 2010 Calendar is chock full of inspiration, humor and passion. Just the sort of thing aspiring and working writers need to read on a daily basis to keep the creative juices flowing and the angst at bay.
  • Each week features an author sharing his/her insights on the writing life.
  • Ample space for jotting notes and highlighting upcoming events on the calendar.
  • Weekly calendar; also a month-at-a-glance view for planning longer projects.
  • Daily listings of famous writers' birthdays.
  • Handy resource list of favorite books and writing-related websites.
  • Page to designate writing goals for the year; also pages for writing monthly goals.
  • Listings of literary holidays.
  • Pages to write down conference notes.
  • Pages for recording phone numbers and email addresses.
  • Handy submission tracker, that can be copied as needed.
  • Listings of popular literary festivals throughout North America.
  • Pages for keeping track of travel/business expenses.

Since we're into month six of 2010, the 2010 Bylines Daily Calendar is on sale for $8 plus shipping and handling, making the total cost $10.95 (versus the normal price of $17.90 with shipping). This is a steal for a fabulous daily writing calendar that I've used for years.
