IWSG DAY, JANUARY 4, 2023, MY WORD FOR 2023 By Pat Garcia @pat_garcia @TheIWSG #IWSG



Welcome to our first IWSG Day of the year, 2023. 


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 and successes or giving others encouragement and support. 

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 January 4 posting of the IWSG are Jemima Pett, Debs Carey, Kim Lajevardi, Sarah Foster, Natalie Aguirre, and T. Powell Coltrin! 



Submission Results for December 2022 


I won the WEP'S The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face Challenge with my submission, Waiting.


I won the first ever MICRO-READ Contest Held by the Rave Reviews Book Club with my submission, JANIE B. 

I have received for the second year in a row the KCT International Literary Award for my book, LET HIS BANNER OVER ME BE LOVE






My word for this year is Consistency.


There are writing classes that I've signed up for, stories that I want to write, and music that I want to compose, and all these areas call for consistency. 

Having set a standard for myself, I don't want to become lazy, uncaring, or lose the fire within me. I want to conceive and pour out the best work within me consistently. 


I wish all of you the best year ever.

Take care and be safe.
