Eight Tips For Writing Explosive Action Scenes

Tracy Lawson, who’s a choreographer in her day job, as well as a writer, has written an interesting blog post on choreographing action scenes. One thing I particularly likes was the way she said it meant actions could be shown, through the senses, rather than told.
Other tips she shared included advancing the story through the characters’ movements, making sure body language is appropriate, field testing your scenes, and using maps to orient yourself in the action.
This article is well worth reading.
