Inspiration from Whence it Comes. IWSG December 2023

Welcome to IWSG Day. The goal of this blog hop is to share and encourage. Writers can express doubts and concerns without fear of appearing foolish or weak. Those who have been through the fire can offer assistance and guidance. It’s a haven for insecure writers of all kinds. IWSG is the brainchild of Alex CavanaughThank you to December co-hosts C.

December question: Book reviews are for the readers. When you leave a book reviews do you review for the Reader or the Author? Is it about what you liked and enjoyed about your reading experience, or do you critique the author?

The fates have conspired against me in so many ways related to this month's IWSG, not the least of which included blogger taking artistic liberties with my layout. Earlier, a domain change caused Gmail to deliver three draft posts I emailed myself to my junk folder. Before I figured it out I thought I was going crazy. In the end, I decided this was the universe telling me my drafts didn’t add a lot of insight to the topic. It’s been a long time, but instead of answering this month’s question I’m posting a picture.

I’m not a fan of the cold but it offers its own gifts. Late afternoon at the reservoir is where I find them. Sometimes it’s a fiery show. Sometimes it’s a watercolor painting.  Almost always, the trip is worth it.

Wishing you the joy of light and the treasure of loved ones during the holidays.
