My writing journey…

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…

Cheers!
