Okay so it looks like I fell off the planet. Promise - I'm still here. The last two years have been ... hard. There's no other word for it. Everything is fine. I'm fine, but I've been the caregiver of my Mother-in-law and now I'm taking care of my mom. Between her needs, work, etc I seem to have lost control of my time. I am still writing and have made a few hard decisions.

I pulled my books from Mundania and have decided to to try to sell them through other publishers. I'm happy to say the 1st three books I sold to HSWF (now owned by Mundania) have been picked up by Melange Books and will be released through their Satin Books imprint. The rest I'm still working on.

I'll probably still be sporadic. Unless I win the lottery and can hire someone to help me I can't avoid it, but know I'm still here still working hard in the background and am hoping to do better at keeping my blog alive.


Tink...tink...tink...anyone out there? Hi! I'm Barbara Donlon Bradley - Author - editor and slightly crazy - ask anyone in my family. I hope to use this blog to talk about writing, editing and whatever pops in my head. Hope you enjoy.

Writing Down the Bones: Interview Questions for Your Characters - The Quest

Here's the next section of the handout. This segment is smaller than the others.Sorry about that. As I said before I don't have an author for this flyer. Date wise I believe it is from the 80's or 90's.

Hope you enjoy.

1.) What does your character want to accomplish, find or become by the end of the book? Why?

2.) What in the outside world (external obstacle) is preventing your characters from reaching this goal?

3.) What in your character's self (internal obstacle) is preventing them from reaching this goal?

4.) What will have to happen for your character to overcome these obstacles?
