Writing Action Scenes

Writing action scenes is fun.

What comes mind when I say those words? Typically someone would think of a movie set in the oldun’ days. Someone had a tripod camera and a megaphone and a snappy board with numbers on it.

I want you to try this when you’re writing an action scene. The idea is to get you to look at the scene in your mind’s eye. Capture what you see with words. Be visceral. Don’t fill in any embellishments like “it was a dark stormy night.” I don’t even want eye color or clothing. Just the facts ma’am! Learn more.
