Writing Fight Scenes


I discovered my fight scenes need a lot of help. Seriously. Simply not writing them isn't an option. What would be the fun in that? I set up a Google Alert for "fight scenes, writing." Below is a list of articles I found helpful. I'll keep adding to this. Whenever I come across a good fight scene in a book, I write it down. I have a journal just for fight scenes.

I look forward to checking out the links you provided, because my fight scenes lack a certain clarity and economy of words right now. I did some research on sword fight scenes and if you are interested, you can check out the links at: http://lithicbee.wordpress.com/2012/03/09/writing-research-sword-fights/
