Hello Everyone,

It is the first Wednesday of the month, and IWSG Time.

So, if you are interested and would like to join, the link below will lead you directly to us:

Good writing stems out of the consistency to read. William Faulkner once said, read everything you can get your hands on whether it is bad or good. You can learn from it all. I believe that.

When the consistency to read becomes a habit, it will kick you in your shinbone when you neglect it, and while you are saying, Ow, Ow, Ow, you will pick up a book and start reading again.

Consistency like perseverance is one of those hidden traits behind the success of every writer that is passionate about seeing that what he or she writes is read by others.

So, for the past five months, I have been learning how to consistently write better. I’d had to let go of some things that I love to do as I concentrate on something more important. 

Am I making progress? I believe so, but I’m still waiting on the confirmation.

Until next month, this Georgia girl wishes all of you a lovely month of May and be safe.

Shalom aleichem,

Pat Garcia
