Meredith Gibraltar shares about her writing journey. A new book is in the mix! Cheers!
I just thought that I’d share a little about my new book idea. It will be a young adult/teen book about a woman who is in college and is saved by a werewolf. It’s my first paranormal romance! Go figure! It will be set in Vancouver. A mysterious amulet is the key! The name of this book will maybe be Mia. Or maybe a catch phrase. I haven’t decided yet.
I’ve told you before that I write about my life in my books. So in my second book Abigail, the heroine is writing a new book called Mia about a werewolf. The idea just popped in my head and so I thought why not! That will be my next book. But I hesitate to start it. I’ll finish Abigail first.
I haven’t started editing Martha yet. I read somewhere that one should wait three months before editing. I can understand that since it will give you a fresh look at the book. It’s hard though. On top of that I don’t know how much writing I’ll get done!
I was anxious the other day. Someone wanted a book review of Martha and it hasn’t even been published yet. This put my whole day out of whack! I was anxious all day. My daughter suggested that I just write a summary. I wrote a quick summary. But I could add to it. I may do that. I’m not sure. I have to think of what we would write on the back cover of the book when I publish it. That’s where I’m at with Martha now.
I’m looking to the future. I entered the first 5000 words of Martha into a contest. I don’t know if I have any chances of winning. I’ll know by the end of March whether I won or not. But I am moving forward and trying out new things. The biggest worry is finding an editor. I have one beta reader. Hopefully she can give me the email addresses of some friends who would also like to be beta readers. The more the merrier. Then I seriously have to find an editor.
Never stop fighting…talk about what makes you anxious…just bring it up with a friend or loved one…you don’t have to say it’s your anxiety…they might have an idea about it that you never would have thought about! Open up…talk to someone…
