My name is Sarah, mother of 2, part time children's librarian and author in the midst of writing a young adult novel, Dream Girl. This blog will chronicle my progress, epiphanies and general writing and literature information. My goal for 2010 is to finish the first draft of Dream Girl which started as a dream I had in 2001 and starting taking form as a novel in 2005. A wedding and two children later, I'm still writing it. I have 32 chapters under my belt and figure I have anywhere between 15-30 left. It appears that the book will need a sequel as it grows in complexity and develops plot elements that I never imagined. This is the longest I've ever stayed with a novel I've started and I still feel really good about this one. I'm so excited.
I feel that if you liked anything about Stephenie Meyer's Twilight series, you'll like Dream Girl. (move over Bella and Edward, here come Christine and Gabriel!) You should also read Shiver by Maggie Stiefvater. It's beautifully written and gives you the paranormal romance that is so tastey these days.
So thank you for checking in as my journey continues. I hope you will be entertained and inspired.
