Weekly Writer's Advice: Fight Scenes 🔫🔪💣
Que tal peeps!

"Don't bring a knife to a gun fight." I have always heard my elders say that quote when it's about to go down lol. But unless you are Inuyasha or Sesshōmaru you can bring all the knifes...swords you want lol!

Anyhow, fight scenes can make or break a story. Honestly, I find fight scenes to be a huge challenge for me. I can see it in my head but it takes time for me to translate it into words.

Questions I ask myself/Things I look for....

1. Does this fight have a purpose?
You don't want to have fight scene for no reason.

2. I'm I giving enough detail? Did I find a balance?
I don't want to give too much and the writer would totally skip over the fight scene that would have meaning. Find a balance of giving enough detail (not to less or too much).

3. Am I using appropriate verbs (action words)?

4. Do I have enough dialogue or too much?

Below I have some tips that I found from other writers...
Verbs Verbs Verbs!! Here is a cheat sheet of verbs to consider....
Here is a good resource to help you out more!

Happy writing!
