IWSG DAY, August 5, 2020, Which Way To Go by Pat Garcia

Hello Everyone,



It is IWSG Time!


IWSG is a writers' support group created and led by Alex Cavanaugh. 


Purpose: To share and encourage. Writers can express doubts and concerns without fear of appearing foolish or weak. Those who have been through the fire can offer assistance and guidance. It’s a safe haven for insecure writers of all kinds!


This group 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:


The Insecure Writer's Support Group 


The awesome co-hosts for the August 5 posting of the IWSG are Susan Baury Rouchard, Nancy Gideon, Jennifer Lane, Jennifer Hawes, Chemist Ken, and Chrys Fey! 



Submission: The Writer Magazine – Non-Fiction Challenge (Results Still Outstanding)









Which Way To Go?


I like to know the direction when I begin to write. Whether it is Non-Fiction or Fiction, I need parameters. That doesn't mean that I box myself in and don't jump over those parameters.  It means that there are specific guidelines that I follow because I am not just writing for myself. 


Having parameters also mean that I know what I am good at. There are some genres that I don't write in. I do take some elements out of these genres and mixed them in my writing, but I don't think you will ever read a horror story by me.  Although I know some great horror writers, I personally would never be able to sleep again if I tried to write one.


Thus, my stories are created because I know the genre, I want to write in. 


I wish you all a lovely month of August. 


Shalom aleichem,

Pat Garcia
