Happy New Year, everyone. Feliz año nuevo.
One might think that starting off 2021 sick is a bad omen. I don’t. Yes, I have a nasty cold, but every morning when I open my eyes, I’m reminded of the blessings in my life. A cold is simply part of that.
Because I’m sick, I’m not answering this month’s question; it would take too much brainpower. Instead, I’m sharing some pics of my road trips across Canada in 2018 and 2019, there and back, from the Pacific Ocean to the Atlantic. Sadly, I did not make it to Newfoundland. Next time.

IWSG was created by Ninja Captain Alex J Cavanaugh — because Alex understands we need a safe place to congregate, insecurity is part of our creative nature, and together we’re stronger.
On the first Wednesday of each month, you can write on any subject related to your writing journey or adopt the option of answering the month’s question. Either way, you’re in safe territory.
If this sounds like a good place to be, sign up here.
IWSG’s Twitter handle is @TheIWSG and the hashtag is #IWSG.
Every month, a question is announced that members can answer in their IWSG post. These questions may prompt you to share advice, insight, a personal experience or a story. Include your answer to the question in your IWSG post or let it inspire your post if you are struggling with something to say.
Remember, the question is optional!
January 6 question – Being a writer, when you’re reading someone else’s work, what stops you from finishing a book/throws you out of the story/frustrates you the most about other people’s books?
