IWSG DAY, May 6, 2020, Getting Out of the Zone by Pat Garcia

Hello Everyone,

It is IWSG Time!

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

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

Getting Out of the Zone

I don’t have a ritual that I follow to help me get in the zone. Usually, when I go down to my office, I automatically enter it, because my zone is my world with my fictional people. They are waiting for me, and they all want my attention. Needless to say, they are demanding. When they think I am writing something that is out of character for them, they interfere.

Thus, getting into the zone is not a problem; it is walking out of it. Once I get involved, I forget the time. I know I need to be more consistent and leave my office and close the door behind me, but once I get in the flow, I stay in the zone. Everything else becomes irrelevant.

Have a lovely month of May and be safe.

Shalom aleichem,

Pat Garcia
