Time for a break

OK I don't write thousands of words a day (aren't you lucky) but it looks like I am not alone:

I feel very conflicted about taking my annual blog hiatus this August. But I'm going to do my best to take a break. If some catastrophe occurs, I'll be back. But blogging each day, sometimes thousands of words a day, is a wonderful but grueling way to write. I think bloggers do well to take time out. We can lose perspective, stop thinking in longer form, and also get exhausted.
