NaNoWriMo Laptop Sticker: PC by MoPotter NaNoWriMo Laptop Sticker: PC by MoPotter
I had this idea last night in bed while I was worrying yet again about NaNoWriMo; and just finished making this in Graphic Illustration today {using Illustrator CS5}
It's what I'm going to print out and stick on the lid of my laptop so that people will know to not talk to me when I'm on my laptop at school/the bus!! I have a novel to write, people!!

Use as you like -all NaNo novelists have the right to peace and quiet when writing!!

I don't know if anyone else has done anything like this before....but I thought it might be fun^^ If you use it anywhere else online, please credit me though!!

See here for the Mac version:

NaNoWriMo & logo (c)....NaNoWriMo...:?
PC is property of Microsoft...and others...

Do you know anyone who would like to help me with illustrating the cover?  I have an image now, but it's not mine and I don't exactly have permission to use it.  I'm only using it for a placeholder of an idea.

Hmm, well you could always try going around dA and asking artists who're interested! I personally don't have time, but I could advertise it in my journal if you want :)

Could I use this as a visual aid in a speech I am giving regarding NaNo for a college class? I would, of course, properly cite it :)

Now if only I could figure out how to do it as a sticker. Maybe I can plaster it to my laptop using tape instead?

That's what I did- however I'm pretty sure to make it as a sticker you just need to print it on sticker paper :meow: However depending on how strong the paper is, you might not be able to get it off after NaNoWriMo! ^^;

I'd buy the sticker paper and just print out a sticker of it but to stick it to my school laptop (which isn't mine) scares me slightly.

If only I dared to put a sticker on my laptop.

If only my laptop would fit in my bag so I could take it with me.

If only I could....

Nah, I need a sticker for my forehead. And one to put on my back when I'm at home. Or maybe just to put on the wall near my desk.
You think my folks would pay attention? :no: No, I didn't think so, either.

Hah pin it to the back of your jacket or the front of your shirt or whatever ;p
You can always try! It's hard to get the message across to people who don't understand what you're trying to do :D

Actually, I'm kind of thinking a hoodie with either a pin or a "patch" (it needn't be an actual patch) might work.
I say hoodie instead of sweater or what-have-you because there could be about four of these "do not disturb" messages on it. One on the front, one on the back, and if you put the hood up, people would see one on the front and on the back of the hood, too.
Or would that be overdoing it? :D

Meh, I'm in my capstone course right now, and my dad still interrupts me all day for more "important" stuff when I'm trying to do homework. Last week I barely got online for my group project until after he'd gone to bed.
So it's not like he's going to cut me more slack for writing fiction. I don't make money at it (yet), so to him, it isn't "important." (Tax wise, he's right; it and my website are both just hobbies. Effort wise, his logic would say that neither homework nor job applications are important, either. :facepalm:)
