As of 1 September 2013 I will be taking a brief break from MOCing. I'm not sure for how long. I'll still be visiting from time to time to read your comments and check out new MOCs from my favourite builders, but my own creations will be put on hold, at least for a few weeks.
UPDATE 1st October 2013. I'm still not MOCing but I am still around and helping when I can as moderator in the MOChelp group.
UPDATE 5th November 2013. While I'm still "technically" retired from active moc'ing, at least for 2013, I may be contributing a new NoVVember creation. It depends as time constraints due to work and my Spanish practice are making LEGO difficult to schedule.
