Urbanophile, Waffle Shop and NaNoWriMo
Couple items for everyone today. Urbanophile profiled Pittsburgh. We’ve heard it all before (the Steel bust, our revival, rest of the country claims we don’t matter that much, check the comments for that one), so it’s becoming a bit cliche. I was alerted to it from The Daily Dish (a British blog that mostly talks about American politics), so it’s getting some traction. Anyway, take a look, and make sure to check out the comments.
Waffle Shop is looking for a manager. If you have experience in restaurant management and want to work in one of the most unique restaurants in the country, check it out.
And finally today, writing has been a bit slow on the site due to my annual, crazy dive into National Novel Writing Month. Pittsburgh has an awesome group writing this year, and you’re more than welcome to join in. If you’re not up for writing the book that’s been bouncing around you head this year, you can still help out.
We’re collecting books (new or used) in support of creative writing programs that The Office of Letters and Light (NaNoWriMo’s parent organization) offers free in schools around the world. You can drop off books at any of the events listed on our forum (or just see what we’re talking about), and learn more about the book drive here.
Leave a comment if you need help finding a time/place to donate books, I’ll make sure you get hooked up with someone in your area.
I think I have some awesome posts in the works, and maybe even a give-away, so stay tuned!
