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! :)
