Annual Blog Break

It's August, so if you've been here a while, you probably know what that means. I usually take a break from blogging for about two weeks at the end of August. Never fear, I'll be back September 12.

Blog Vacation

It's that time of year again--time for the annual blog vacation. I'll be back on September 4 with a new blog series, and ready to get started on Nano Training Prep. See you then!
