IWSG DAY, JANUARY 6, 2021, READING By Pat Garcia

Happy New Year!


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:

Short Story: Turn The Light On, To Be Release on February 14, 2021


Thanks to all who have volunteered to help me. I will be getting in contact with everyone as soon as the book cover is finished, and my manuscript has been read by a professional proofreader. 










There are many books out in the Literary Hemisphere, and it isn't easy to judge whether a book is well-written unless one reads it. That said, let me say that I read lots of books. It is very seldom that I run across a book that has lots of mistakes. 


However, if I bought a book containing numerous errors, I must admit that I would read it until it is finished. If I knew the author, I would communicate with them by email and tell them what I found respectfully.  I have done this. I was at a church conference in Amsterdam in 2009. I liked the speaker and decided to buy his book. When I got home, I saw so many mistakes but continued reading. After reading, I sat down and wrote the speaker a letter. That letter got me my very first editing job. 


Thus, I do try to be non-judgmental and keep reading until the end. 


Wishing you all a great 2021.


Shalom aleichem,




Pat Garcia
