The art of writing fight scenes

There’s more to writing a fight scene than describing punches and kicks. No matter what kind of romance you write, chances are your characters will get into a physical confrontation at some point. 

These are the topics that author and martial artist K.M. Fawcett will cover:

  • Characterization
  • Emotion
  • Intent
  • Setting
  • Improvised Weapons
  • Action/Reaction
  • Pacing
  • Clarity
  • Dialog
  • Climatic Battle
  • Choreography
