Overview

Have you ever:

*Held a sword?
*Taken a karate class?
*Punched another person in the face?

Even if your answer is "no," you can still write a good fight scene. In this guide, fantasy novelist Marie Brennan will show you how. Drawing on her experience with fencing, stage combat choreography, Okinawan martial arts, and above all writing, she lays out the components that turn the strikes into a compelling story.

From purpose to tactics to prose, Writing Fight Scenes walks you through the anatomy and execution of combat on the page.
