Book Bites: Nanowrimo Singapore Kick-Off!

Book BitseThe theme for this year’s Nanowrimo Singapore Kick-Off was “True to Yourself”. So Sarah turned up in a Dragon onesie to show her inclination to fantasy and I wore my dark turtleneck to express mystery.

Let the party begin!

Like most of the Kick-Offs of the past, this one was held at the Possibility Room at the National Library Building. And the gang ended up taking a huge bunch of group pictures thanks to Mintea’s selfie stick. (After we did a quick setup, of course)

Co-hosting this year, it was quite heart-warming to look at the sheer number of support which has grown for Nanowrimo Singapore over the years. According to Sarah, initial number of people who have signed in (not counting accompanying friends and parents) reached 101! We were also grateful for the wonderful people from the 24 Hour Comics Day (JF, Ben, Max) and the National Library for giving us the space and a good load of door gifts and prizes.

So there you have it! That’s Nanowrimo Singapore Kick-Off 2014 for everyone. It ended earlier than previous Kick-Offs, but we still managed to have good fun during and at the after-party (at the Maccas next door. LOL.) And that’s it =)
