Christine Haggerty ( Judo black belt) LOVES writing fight scenes and she has volunteered to not only help out with problematic punch ups if you want to post them here, but she will write an article explaining how to do it right.
While you are deciding which of your violent scenes, fisticuffs, sword fights, dragon attacks, or domestic rowing needs attention, and you’re plucking up the courage to let us all have a look at it, I suggest you look at Christine’s blog
She has some great participative ideas going on there.
Send me the scenes of mayhem you think need a touch of something or other and I’ll post them here. Send me the scenes you feel you’ve done a good job with too, and the links to the book. If you have any tips for the writers of violence, let’s have them.
Something to think about for later—the next suggestion to wrestle with is the dreaded book blurb. If anyone has any advice on how to write one, if such a person indeed exists, I’d be pleased to hear from you. I’m adding another contact form just in case.
