The verdict is in...

and it's slightly disappointing.  DREAM GIRL, is not actually finished.  Revision is on hold because I have to write a new ending.  It's frustrating because, I'm sure you've noticed, I was incredibly excited to get this wrapped up so I could start querying agents.  Now, I'm no longer sure how far away from that goal I am.  I'm back to outlining and plotting. 
Even though this is a disappointing setback, it's not all bad either.  I'm proud of myself for realizing there is more work to be done and that I'm committed to doing this project properly.  I hope the payoff will be a stronger finished product that will hook an agent. 
The next phase is not as close as I imagined, but it's also not a far off distant dream.  I just have to get through a foggy patch and I'll be back where I wanted to be. 
In the meantime, I'm enjoying my fan page on Facebook:  Sarah Perry, Children's and Young Adult Author.  There's a contest there that ends tonight at midnight.  Check it out for a chance to have one of my DREAM GIRL characters named after you.  Since I have to rewrite the ending, there's a pretty juicy, yet nameless character who is now in the mix.  Could be your namesake!  :)


  1. Hi Sarah - Despite your setback, you're still #1 in my book. Please come over to my blog to pick up your award.

  2. Hey Sarah,

    I have been following you for a while now. I am also a writer, and I'm interested to read some of your work. I would love to see a snip it from any of your writing in the future.
