IWSG DAY, AUGUST 3, 2022, WRITING IN WHICHEVER DIRECTION MY CREATIVE MUSE LEADS ME By Pat Garcia, #IWSG, @TheIWSG












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 August 3 posting of the IWSG are Tara Tyler, Lisa Buie Collard,Loni Townsend, and Lee Lowery!

 Writing in Whichever Direction My Creative Muse Leads Me

 

 

I must admit that I struggled with this question at the beginning of my writing career. I found my answer by examining my beliefs and my raison d' ĂȘtre for writing. Simply put, I don't write what I don't want to read myself. For me, the highest satisfaction is writing a book I know I can be true to regardless of what others may think about my creative imagination.


Wishing all of you a lovely month and take care.

 

Shalom aleichem,

  1. Indeed, one mustn't write what they'd be uncomfortable reading themselves or what they wouldn't enjoy. Makes sense.

  3. I certainly write what I want to read. That's how I began in the first place.

  4. That's perfect. I write what I love to read as well!

  5. I agree--write what we like to read. That should be the Golden Rule for writers!

  6. I love your pic, Pat. You look so happy and at peace. I agree totally with your reasons for writing. I write what I want to read too. Happy IWSG Day.

  8. I'm with you, Pat. I write what I want to read. When I first started writing science fiction romance, it was because I couldn't find any to read. I'd read all I could find. (Guess I didn't search enough LOL) If I don't like what I've written, how would a reader? Hope you have a good month.

  9. I also write what I would like to read.
    For me, an added element is the fun factor. The writing process must be fun! It should never feel like a burden.
    Have a wonderful month of August, Pat.

  10. Yes! Gotta be true to yourself first!

  11. Of course. If we don't like what we write, nobody else will either.

  12. I'm the same - I write what I'd like to read. So I guess I'm writing for those people who like to read the same kinds of books I do. I think there's some circular reasoning there, but it works for me.

  13. Hiya Pat. Yes, I once read advice re 'write what you want to read' and I've pretty much followed that.

  14. This is Lisa Buie-Collard, since for some reason I can’t sign in to comment! I admire people who stay true to themselves while also bringing joy to others, like you!
