fighting the fight (scenes)

well, it's that time again in my writing journeys. the fight scenes. I hate em and have put them off until I can't anymore. I forced myself to write two of the required scenes. I have two more now to do so I am half way through my hell. let's face it, they just aren't my thing. I would rather write anything else. anything. I just have no knack for them. they're boring to me. not to read I guess but to write. so I'll continue my battle and write the dang things even though it feels like torture. it's the only way I'll get the manuscript finished.

  1. Can relate to that. Writing in the first person, when my character is alone, there's lots of personal thought, description, and I get tired of that too. Much better when I reach pages of description. The remedy is to include many more conversations, change what is happening. :0)

  2. Approach a fight scene like this:

    As Eddie landed his first punch, his thoughts wandered to a time in his childhood...his mom always added extra sugar to the Kool-aid, making him one of more popular kids on the block during the hot summers.

    After a few more pages of flashbacks, your ready will forget all about the fight scene.
