The Anatomy of a Fight Scene. (Part One – The Craft of Storytelling)

Stories are about conflict. And there is no purer form of conflict than a good ole fisticuffs-style brawl. Or sword fight, laser battle, western shootout, and even two chicks pulling each other's hair. Yet, how to put that much action down on paper and not only make it believable, but enjoyable and exciting to read? Join award-winning author Maxwell Alexander Drake as he brings you deep inside the violence, breaking it down piece by piece, and giving you some tricks you can use to create more realistic and exciting fights.

    This class is not a class on how to fight, nor even to choreograph a fight on paper. It is how to use the English language to write a dynamic action scene, and what to think about in preparation for writing a fight scene.

    Hope to see you there.

    I hit another guy in the face when I was 18. It made me feel horrible, mostly because I'd hoped for a one hit fight. Ever since that time, I've vowed to be a more conciliatory person. I wonder if I could benefit from this lesson somehow.
