Top tips for writing fight scenes

Writing fight scenes into your book keeps the reader on their toes and gives your story some excitement!

Here are my top tips for writing fight scenes:

  1. Write in short sentences. This speeds up the story!
  2. Introduce senses. E.g. she could taste blood, smell sweat, hear a grunt, see people running
  3. Make it realistic
  4. Show what they’re fighting for. Treasure? Someone they love?
  5. Call in morals and motives. What will they become after they’ve killed someone? Do they really want to start a fight?
  6. Keep the fight short (readers don’t want to read pages and pages of your characters at war)

I hope this post helps! Let me know what you’re working on in the comments below!

Stay safe,
