The Creative Writer’s Toolbelt Episode 91 – Stay on target! How to write a great action scene

For this episode I am again joined by Jessi Rita Hoffman. Jessi is a former publishing house editor-in-chief and award-winning magazine editor now offers professional book editing services and author coaching. In this episode Jessi and I discuss the key elements of the action scene. From the need to keep the prose tight, to managing the rising tension, from dumping those ‘hedge’ words, to not telling us how much your protagonist is bleeding. Remember – keep the girl, or guy, fighting!
