IWSG Day, May 2, 2018, A Simple Answer To A Complex Question









Hello Everyone,

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

IWSG is a writer support group created and led by Alex Cavanaugh. It is a big help to many of us who do not mind sharing our insecurities, our successes or giving encouragement and help to others. 

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


My report:

One Submission to Glimmer Train – Very short Fiction – April 30, 2018

 One Rejection - Glimmer Train Submission  from February 2018 – Rejected











 IWSG Day Question: It's spring! Does this season inspire you to write more than others, or not?

A Simple Answer To A Complex Question

No. I write. I’ve learned to separate my emotions regarding, the seasons of the year, or whether it is raining, or the sun is shining or snowing or hailing with when I write. My inspiration to write comes from knowing that this is why I was born. This is the purpose of my existence; therefore, I write. 


Wishing all of you a lovely month of May. 
Take care and be safe. 

Shalom aleichem,













Pat G

  2. And write you must, for it is a gift from God to give away as He directs! All for the glory of God! I love you, Patty!

  3. Thinking of you Pat. I'm like you. I write all year long regardless of the season but at least in Spring I can write by a nice sunny window or read outside :)

  8. That's a powerful statement: The reason why you were born. I've never thought of it that way. :-)

  9. I'm the same as you. The season doesn't matter- only the time available matters.

  11. It is wonderful that you could do that: write no matter what. I have several stories in my head, but I haven't written anything for a while, except a couple blog posts and some non-fiction articles for my newspaper. I need to get back to writing; it bothers me that I can't.

  12. Tell it like it is, Pat! :) I think my process is similar, but I'd be lying if I said the long northern winter months didn't cut my productivity. :) Happy IWSG day!

  13. I really like that - that you write because you know that's the purpose of your existence. And good luck with submitting again. Happy IWSG day!

  15. Yes to this! - "My inspiration to write comes from knowing that this is why I was born. This is the purpose of my existence; therefore, I write." :)

  16. Seasons don't affect my writing but they do my imagination and stories when needed. Happy IWSG Day.

  17. Wow, I have to admit I envy and admire your focus! I cannot lie: I am easily distracted by a lovely day :) But at a deeper level you are right: the need to write never changes.

  21. Well, I'm catching up somewhat. I didn't think I'd be able to do that, but with glue on my jeans, I'm sticking to the chair and making the rounds. Loved your comment on my blog, and wanted you to know I appreciated your visit. I admire your determination with Glimmer Train and have my fingers crossed that you'll get a publication in their great magazine soon.
