I have been journal writing forever and have attempted short stories but never could get the rhythm for describing a fight scene. I have been trying to write fantasy about animals in a real world and their behaviors. I love this book. It will make the difference in my writing.
It is like a reference guide for all types of weapons, scenes and the focus of the fighters. It describes the pit falls or blunders of what can go wrong in a fight scene. I love the links to You Tube that gives the visual to the chapter you have just read. I love the following chapters: 15. Female Fighters, 16. Male Fighters and 17. Animals and Weres. I was unaware the difference between the male and female psyche where a woman is slower to initiate or respond and takes longer to come to a rest mentally.
If you need a boost in providing a more realistic fight scene this book is a must reference guide.
