Posted by October 28th, 2013

NaNoWriMo 2013 is only four days away!

As part of my NaNoWriMo Prep, I created this calendar to help me plan and keep track of my progress. You can download a printer-friendly version here.

What’s the best way to use your Book Country NaNoWriMo Calendar?

Whatever way will keep you motivated!

For example, you can buy a packet of star stickers, and give yourself a gold star every day that you write!

Or, you can have different colored stars represent different word counts.

You can also use the calendar to keep track of your daily word count more specifically:

You can use a highlighter to mark off all the days that you write during NaNo:

Or, if you know you’re not going to be able to write every day of NaNoWriMo, use a highlighter to highlight the days that you plan to write.

Plan ahead with a highlighter.

Then give yourself a gold star for every time you successfully fit NaNoWriMo into your schedule.

    Thank you for this! It’s always great to have something in print as a visual. Also, we can write the number of words written on each day.
