    Definitely a great article for aspiring writers–thank you! However, might I make one recommendation… shorten the paragraphs for those of us reading on smartphones. My eyes were going cross-ways!

      Thank you–and good idea. I generally dictate these things (after having already spent all day at the computer on novel writing, I need a break!), so the paragraph style is different than my usual writing style. I’ll try to remember my smartphone constituency in the future!

    It’s funny that you put this question up. I was doing a Reboot of my own story to make things a bit more far fetched, and realized that the fight scenes I’ve written over the past 2-3 years were outrageously boring to anyone except me. This was exactly the kind of thing I needed to put them on track. Thanks so much for putting this up!
