Staff Favorite: Moleskine Messenger Bag

Moleskine Messenger Bag on

A favorite of our CEO, Creative Designer, and Lead Programmer, among others, the Moleskine Messenger Bag brings the personality of the legendary notebook to the classic over-the-shoulder urban carryall. Robust and flexible piece to accompany your travels, whether near or far, the interior is lined in ivory faux-suede with a soft, luxurious feel, and also includes an “In case of loss” label sewn inside. A rear divider creates a separate back section; the front of the divider is covered in black terry fabric that attaches to Moleskine multi-purpose cases (sold separately). It can be used to carry any laptop computer with a screen size of up to 15-inch.

What’s your favorite carryall?

Learn more about Quo Vadis and Exacompta:

Founded in 1954 in Paris, Quo Vadis was built on the practical (and new at the time) framework of a calendar/diary combination format, invented by the French doctor, F.G. Beltrami. Known today simply as a “weekly planner format,” Quo Vadis has evolved this concept into a full line of stylish monthly, weekly, and daily planners. With the aim to keep you organized, all Quo Vadis Refills are compatible with certain Quo Vadis Covers and have a sewn binding and micro-perforated, detachable corners.

Established in 1928 in Paris, Exacompta originally manufactured ledgers primarily for accounting. Today they have grown to incorporate high quality and stylish notebooks, datebooks, and filing accessories. Exacompta Prestige agendas are printed on two special papers: Registre Azur, a lightly green-tinted paper (developed to be easy on the eyes); and Ivoire Satine, a very fine ivory paper that is lightweight and exceptionally strong. All Exacompta Prestige Refills are compatible with Quo Vadis Covers and have a sewn binding and micro-perforated, tear-off corners.

National Novel Writing Month: NaNoWriMo

1 Nov

It’s that time of year again! If you’ve never heard of NaNoWriMo, this is the time to kick your writing into overdrive.

Starting today, the goal is to write a 50,000-word novel by midnight on November 30, 2012!

Fifty thousand words can sound incredibly daunting – especially if you don’t write on a regular basis – but it is very possible. Whether you don’t think you have the time, or you think you’re not a good writer, or anything else that may be stopping you in your tracks, let us just say that all you have to do is start writing! It is as easy as that.

To start, put it on your schedule to write for at least 15 minutes a day and gradually increase your writing time over the month. That way, you at least start the process. Once you get the ball rolling, by mid-month you’ll feel much more at ease with the writing process and your goal of 50K words. If you need support, encouragement, or just a bit of enthusiasm to get you started writing, the NaNoWriMo site has a wonderful forum of other people in the writing process, too!

Last year, over 250,000 people from around the world participated in NanoWriMo 2011. “NaNoWriMo is the writing world’s version of a marathon,” said Grant Faulkner, executive director of National Novel Writing Month. “Writers exit the month with more than a novel; they’ve experienced a transformative creative journey.”
