Satisfaction with a fight scene…

Published April 9, 2015 by S. E. Myers

There is something satisfying about sitting here and seeing my character kick some evil butt. However, it is extremely exhausting. By the end of the fight I feel as if I need to take a break. Andie limps away nursing her wounds and the other character is usually dead and/or apprehended.

When writing these scenes, I think of Jet Li or Jason Statham. I’m a fan of both and watching their movies (yes I realize the fight scenes are choreographed) gives me a little insight into how I need to frame the fight. Fast, Furious, little dialogue. Let’s be honest, who in their right mind will stop to speak a whole paragraph in the midst of fighting someone.

I was just thinking and wanted to take a break from my own fight scene and share.
