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 awesome co-hosts for the November 3 posting of the IWSG are Kim Lajevardi, Victoria Marie Lees, Joylene Nowell Butler, Erika Beebe, and Lee Lowery!

Writing My Blurb Is More Difficult


Writing a blurb for a story is much more difficult for me.  I write my story with the title of the book guiding me. The title is closely tied in with my plot. Because a blurb is not a summary or detailed event of what occurs in the book, I find it hard to free myself from plot points in my story. I usually have to step away for a week or two before I write the blurb.


Wishing everyone a lovely November, and for those celebrating the U.S. Thanksgiving Day, 

Happy Thanksgiving!


Take care and be safe. 


Shalom aleichem,

Pat Garcia
