As our newsletter readers already know, I'm about to leave for a writing residency. So in all likelihood, I'll be taking a complete break from the blog for the next month. But I'll leave you with a virtual grab bag of items to keep you busy for at least a little while. And don't forget to check our links, archives, Web site, and e-books while we're gone.
Have a great October!
