IWSG Day, June 6, 2018, Transitioning, by Pat Garcia

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:

 Submission to Glimmer Train – Very short Fiction – April 30, 2018
Submission to The Colorado Gold Writing Contest For Emerging Writers – May 31, 2018

I am in a transition phase. I am transitioning into something new. I am standing in the tunnel close to the door waiting for it to open. 

Lack of sleep, trouble with focusing, and trying to get a grip on the euphoria within me while I wait are some of the typical signs I am experiencing.  I’m waiting, hoping, and praying that what is about to happen is what I am expecting.  

I have to keep telling myself, it is okay to be sixes and sevens, to be like the absentminded professor, to be afraid, and to feel expectant at the same time. I feel like I am on a roller-coaster.  This is my emotional state at the moment, day in, day out. 

I keep making myself move forward while I wait. Things are going to work out for my good. The door will open. 

When it does, I will let you know.

Wishing all of you a lovely month of June. 
Take care and stay safe. 

Shalom aleichem,

Pat G
