how to write a good scene
Ok, who has ever read a really good action book, but everytime a fight breaks out, it sucks? i know i haven't, That's because most experienced authors know a good way to write out a good fight scene. This course is for anyone who is trying to put a little action into their story, but can't seem to figure out how to get it to stand out and look good. I think there are 3 major steps to this process
1. Imagine the fight in real life/movie form
2. figure out how to describe what's happening
3. Write it out
Any good book/novel should be written so that a reader can close their eyes and imagine the setting, the characters, the conflict, etc. Writing a good fight is no different. Before you even pick up your pencil/pen, or even touch a keyboard, take a moment and think out what you want to happen. who gets hit when, what they say, where it takes place, etc.
Next, you need to figure out just how you want to describe it so that the scene stands out as a good fight. this is also just like writing any other part of a good piece of literature. The better the descriptions, the easier your reader should be able to pick up on it and be able to visualize it. But, know the limit between good, creative writing that keeps your readers reading, or just saying "HEY, HERE'S WHAT HAPPENS!!" and making it not worth reading.
And finally, and i think this last step is excruciatingly simple, you just write out wht you've visualized onto paper.
