Happy September! This Week in Review is brought to you by Ari! Who’s that, you say? More on that below.
- The 2012 swag is finally here! So far the office favorite has been the Nutritional Facts thermos, with a list of all the active ingredients that make for a great novel.
- We also interviewed Nic Buron, the designer for this year’s NaNo shirts and stickers. In the meantime, NaNoWriMo draws closer. Sit tight, November. We’re coming for you!
- Speaking of which, we’ve begun recruiting classrooms and libraries to take part with us this year. People can learn about Come Write In Libraries and follow the link to sign up!
- And ML Applications are almost done. Hooray!
Facebook & Twitter
- @NaNoWriMo has been weighing the option of acquiring an office lizard. One of our followers suggested the name Eddie Lizzard, which several of us found pretty endearing. We could even sew him little dresses! Cast your votes: Eddie Lizzard 2012.
- Our beloved Program Director, Lindsey Grant, is getting married! This week’s writing prompt is a toast to the happy couple.
In the Office & Elsewhere
- With the busy season upon us, OLL has acquired some fresh interns! Stay tuned for their intro posts.
- Visitors galore: Community Liaison Sarah Mackey has been in the office with us, and will be until late next week, and Chris Baty made an appearance on Thursday to sign some books. Hooray!
