I write fantasysci-fi that has lots of action in it but i feel like i'm really bad at writing the actual fightattlewar scenes... does anyone have any tips??? thanksss!!! :)
hmmm thanks.. i've never tried music while I'm writing before, it kinda distracts me, but i'll give it a shot :)
i also suggest watching star wars. lol. i'm kidding. when i write scifi battle sceanes i use my knowledge of self defense, karate, ti kwon do, gymnastics, and jojitso. don't give me that look gymnastics is very helpful with defense and offense.
When writing action scenes trying to keep the description minimal. Keep your writing simple,short and to the point during the actually battle/fight so the readers can get a clear picture of whats going on
i always listne to music with a fast beat to it i thelps with the intesity of the scene and makes it easier to flow with as you write
If you have a character who is particularly aggressive, you can describe their expressions. I always use descriptions of the eyes to show parts of a character's mood
