NaNoWriMo Icons & Banner; or, Spiffing The Place Up

(Post-A-Day Challenge, Day 15)

(Yes, I know, it’s technically tomorrow, but I haven’t gone to bed yet, so it still counts.  Neener-neener.)

Okay, so today, I made myself some icons–and a banner–for NaNoWriMo.  I’m going to try for a couple more of each, but here’s what I have so far:

First, the banner:

I took my netbook to the Tattered Cover today and took some photos of it in various locations.  Most of the icons and this banner all come from that photoshoot.  You’ll be seeing a lot more of this banner come November.

Next, icons:

This first one was inspired by the “Eat. Sleep. Read.” signs they have posted all over at the Tattered Cover.  I thought this version was more appropriate for NaNoWriMo.

This one’s just simple and basic.  I may use it as a base for other things later.

For posts about things other than writing.  Obviously.

No text on this one.  Just the netbook and a comfy chair.

Er, yes, well…

Once I saw this chair, I had to have pictures.  And once I had pictures, there had to be icons.  (And no, I don’t know where my comfy chair is.  I don’t have a comfy chair.  I really wish I did.)

And finally, because it’s something of a tradition for me, there had to be at least one animated GIF.  This one, again, based on the Comfy Chair.

So that’s what I’ve got so far.  More to come!

    I was searching for posts about NaNoWriMo on WordPress, and yours came up.
    Nice icons! I especially like the simple red one and the “Not now, dear.” one. :)

  2. I have to admit, I’m pleased with how the red one came out. Feel free to take copies of any you liked!

  3. Hi! Googled for NaNoWriMo icons, found your blog first. Will using the first one and the simple laptop one with credit. Thanks!

    • Yay! You’re welcome! Good luck with your NaNo. And if the NaNo website ever gets the “buddy” function up and running, I’m arwensouth out there, if you want another NaNo buddy.
