I got my complimentary copy of the Bylines 2010 calendar the other day. (Actually it was maybe two weeks ago now. Sylvia was a smidge late getting them out. I’ve been a smidge late remembering to write about it.)
It’s my third year to make it in. (And part of the payment is a complimentary copy.)
Each week a different author’s essay is featured. They’re very short. (Less than 300 words.)
My week is coming up soon. (The week starting February 21.)
The first year I made it in I wasn’t able to do much promo before I moved my mom in with us and assumed full-time (and then some!) care taking duties. Then last year I was far too sick from dealing with hitchhiker complications and chemo to do much of anything except veg or sleep.
So this year I need to start spreading the word. I figured I’d practice via my blog.
They’re very cool calendars with lots of space for jotting notes and plotting plans. My favorite thing is the “Goals” and “Tasks” checklists for each month at the front. Super handy and organizationally motivating!
