The Anatomy of an Action Scene (Part One – The Craft of Storytelling)

Adventure Stories are about action and conflict. There is simply no way to get a reader's pulse racing better than a well-written action scene. Yet, how do you put that 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. Remember to print out handout from my website and bring it with you. You can find it, and my other handouts, under the Teaching section of my www.DrakeU.com (http://www.drakeu.com/) website.
