The Anatomy of a Fight Scene. (Part Two – The Craft of Writing)

Understanding when and how to use physical conflict in your story is all well and good. But, how to write it? How do authors paint such a vivid, action-packed fight scene that readers can "see" in their mind using only the written word? Join award-winning author Maxwell Alexander Drake as he peels back the mystery and looks at using words to craft action. Action that your readers will not simply read, but experience.

    I'm not really into physical conflict, but I'm sure the structure can be applied to other settings. I look forward to a valuable meeting, as was the previous one.
