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: Story Constructiom and Evaluation The Romance Novel Part 11 The Resolution #writingtips

I know I know it's about time I posted on this handout again. I plan on explaining what has caused me to be so bad at posting in a day or two.

I'm working off the handout written by Janice Bennett titled Writing the Popular Novel. Now we're going to talk about how to look at your resolution during the editing process.

1.) Have you concluded all of your conflicts?

2.) Have you made your climax satisfying? Have you pulled on your reader's emotions?

3.) This one I just copied because I feel she worded this one perfectly. Have you taken advantage of any poetic justice?

4.) Are there any loose ends you missed before the romance between your hero ad heroine is resolved?
