My writing journey…

book w maple b pixabay 500 pi

Meredith Gibraltar writes about her writing journey.  I have figured out the ending for my  fiction but am still working on the title and the subtitle.  I am slowly progressing though.

I started out with the idea that my book would be three books named Stephen, Theo and The Dominant.  It was meant to be a fiction.  I then started incorporating some of the issues that I face with anxiety and the book took a whole new turn.  Then I thought that I would call the book Martha.  Now I have decided on the end.  I am torn between calling the book Martha or the name of the man that she falls in love with at the end.  I haven’t figured out who that is yet.  I’ll have to see.  While the book followed my footsteps in my healing journey for a chapter, now it will be fiction again based on my experiences in life.  Since it is a romance she will fall in love.  Her journey is the main point of the whole book so I think that I will be calling it Martha.  Then the subtitle becomes very important.  I don’t know what it will be yet.  I will have to wait until I finish the book.

Editing the book is next.  I will send the book to one friend and have her read it.  Then I will send it to the editor.  I haven’t chosen an editor yet.

Then publishing is the most daunting task.  I think that I’ll have to self publish.  I don’t know.  I’ll see when I get to that stage.

Slowly my book advances.  I have to set dates for when I will finish the book to give me incentive.  I’ll do that next.

Until next time…Cheers!


Thank you Theo…a poem.

Meredith Gibraltar writes a poem about Theo…the second section in her book The Dominant.  Cheers!

Theo, my love.

You gave me strength and courage.

Courage to face the fears of being followed.

Courage to step outside when all eyes were on me.

Courage to smile in the face of danger.

I trust you with my life.

I follow your advice because my life depends on it.

You love and protect me.

Thank you Theo.

Thank you.

Antoine…a poem.

Meredith Gibraltar writes a poem about the second part of her book The Dominant.  It might be written into the section Theo.  Cheers!

I fear evil.

His name is Antoine.

He is satanic and does satanic sacrifice.

I fear his knife.

He rapes and cuts human flesh.

He is evil.

He is feared by all.

I trust in God and Theo.

They protect me.

It is in trusting in the good

that my fear subsides.

I don’t believe in the evil.

I believe in God.

I Remember…a poem.

Meredith Gibraltar writes a poem for the second chapter of her book The Dominant.  This chapter is called Theo.  Cheers!

I have waited…

I have waited and loved your memory…

I have waited.

Where are you?  Why so long?

Please come to me.


I am devoted.  I love you all.

Please come.

I still fear.  My life depends on it.

I am on that edge…

I fear.  I am safe.

Please come to me.

It’s safe here but not where you are.

Please come.

I wait…

I write…a poem.

Meredith Gibraltar writes a poem about herself and writing. Cheers!

I write to free my soul.

I fly with delight.

I am freed of the oppression.

I am freed of the fear.

I fly so high.

I write.

I suffer from anxiety. Much of what I write reflects the fear that I feel in my own life. It also reflects the love that I have felt in my dreams. Cheers!

I must go…a poem.

Meredith Gibraltar writes a poem for her first book Stephen.  I am being distracted from writing but feels that she owes it to her readers.  I used to write a poem a day for part of the month of April!

There is danger!

Someone new!

It’s the first time that you’ve warned me

Of danger on the streets.

I am scared!

So dangerous!


I have to leave?

How?  Without you?  Why?

So much danger!

But without you?!

How will I survive?!

I go alone!  Without you!

So much danger.

The future is not clear!

I trust you when you say there is danger.

So much danger.

I leave.  Alone.

I must go.


I dream…a poem.

Meredith Gibraltar wrote the following poem in her first book  … Stephen.  I take the time to share it with you now.  Sorry I have been busy and not writing as much poetry as usual.  But I did write this yesterday and thought I’d share it with you now.  Cheers!

I dream.

I fear.

I cannot move.

Cannot speak.

Red cloaks.  Red hoods.

Knives soaked in red blood.


I fear.

I cannot move.

Cannot speak.

I fear.

Open my mouth.

No sound!

I try to yell!

No sound!

Terror!  Stark terror!

My head presses into my pillow.

Terror!  No sound!

Help!  I moan.

I roll over.

I can move.

I open my mouth!

No sound! 

I gurgle a sound!

No words!

I fear!  No sound!

I try to relax.  Relax.

A sound!  A word!


The terror spell is broken!

I can speak!

I can move!

I am safe!
