The Ups and Downs of Writing a Fight Scene
Any story built around action and adventure, whatever its genre, needs a fight scene. For such a scene to be effective, the author must write it in a way that seems believable, that pulls the reader into the action, and that affects the characters or the plot. This workshop looks at ways to do that, including consideration of various factors that make the scene believable. We will discuss the differences between a small-scale confrontation and a battle and will contrast effective fight scenes with ones that snap the suspension of disbelief. The program combines a lecture presentation with discussion, including questions and answers. Participants are encouraged to discuss books that include fight scenes they find effective.
