IWSG DAY, October 2, 2019, My Reasons for Reading by Pat Garcia

Hello Everyone,

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

IWSG is a writers' 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 Reasons for Reading

The first brick laid in my storytelling was by older people who told me stories or read me stories from books. These simple stories like Jack and Jill or Humpty Dumpty fascinated me. They awakened my desire and made me hungry to learn how to read. That hunger is still within me, and I doubt that it will ever disappear. 

I am a voracious reader, and I take great pride in reading books by other authors. Books that are written by different authors expand my horizon and educate me over the writing process.

For me, writing your story deals with utilizing the craft. I am able to learn and use writing techniques from my favorite authors, which helps me interweave my words into a tale where the reader can slip away from his or her everyday existence. 

I honestly don’t believe I would be as far as I am now in my writing if I didn't read.

Wishing all of you a lovely month of October and take care.

Shalom aleichem,

Pat Garcia
