Therefore, the office calendar is still one of the useful things in our profession. We were briefed to provide something inspiring for our employees in 2013! So we started with a simple theory: creativity, storytelling and imagination are associated with our work. We decided to combine them. Many of us have dreamt of writing books and of course, publish them. So the idea was simple: Writing while working. "2013. This is my year" is an office calendar which whole is designed as a book. Each recipient has been given a copy with his own name and a personal photo. We also included imprint, appendix, colophon, and even a book review. The book was divided into monthly chapters, which gave the author an opportunity to fill them with content. We gave calendars to our workmates, for whom telling stories is a job... and to all those for whom writing might be fun - clients, collaborators, and friends...
The book review: "2013. This is my year" is a literary calendar, which gives the author an opportunity to muse about his or her own work and professional life. The form of this fictionalized documentary is reminiscent of the most remarkable pieces from the genre, to name a few: Notes on a matchbox by Umberto Eco, Diary by Witold Gombrowicz or Travels with Herodotus by Ryszard Kapuściński. It is a humorous chronicle of the year 2013 full of quips and puns for everyone. The laughs, the cries, the odds, the breakdowns, the wickedness, the sketches of dissidence, the rants and raves of a creative mind... All that makes this calendar a genuine piece of modern literature we all have familiar feelings for.
Publisher's note: Many of us at some point in our lives dreamt of becoming a writer and anyone who has been writing dreamt of publishing their own book. This calendar combines a unique possibility to write and publish your work instantly. Now anyone can take a second look at their own piece of work, make creative use of each professional moment, wake the storyteller in themselves and most of all write their own book about their own year 2013.
"We spend half a life working.
It might be a good story. Isn't it?"
