Greetings and salutations, fellow Wrimos! My name is Hilary and I have the absolute pleasure of introducing myself as one of the newest interns at The Office of Letters and Light. (An organization whose name has been brought to my attention as sounding like it’s something straight out of Harry Potter… and I honestly couldn’t be more thrilled about that!)
I graduated from Texas Tech University (Wreck ‘em, Tech!) with a degree in English and a minor in music. I’m a native of El Paso, Texas and just became a resident of the Bay Area as of Saturday. As you can imagine, quite a few major changes have been happening in my life as of late; however, it’s easy to say that the most thrilling development is coming to work for the fine people of this office! I am beyond psyched to be a part of the team and can’t wait to delve into the festivities by helping you embark on your own NaNoWriMo adventures.
Enough of the formalities, you say? Fair enough! Let’s see, what else is there to know about me… I love all things pertaining to moose (although I am known to incorrectly say “meese”). I have to limit myself to reading only six different books at a time or else things get a little crazy. Like many others, music is my lifeline and I seem to perpetually have a song stuck in my head (at this very second it’s “You Make My Dreams” by Hall & Oates, in case you were wondering). I can quote Arrested Development, Friends, and any Wes Anderson film like nobody’s business. I have yet to see a Disney movie that hasn’t made me cry. And I am legitimately freaked out by the plethora of spiders that seemingly reside in Northern California.
Obviously, giving an account of my entire life story would be a snooze-fest for most of you, so those are just some highlights. I’ll save the rest for my memoir or for any of you willing to ask! I’m very much looking forward to working with and getting to know all of you, so don’t be shy.
Now let’s get this show on the road! C’mon, all you Wrimos out there, let’s dance! (I mean figuratively of course, seeing as how I’m a horrific dancer… But if you ask nicely, I may bust a move in your honor.)
