2015 – Sorry – these courses have been discontinued after several years of happy customers! You can find much of the information in my books for authors here.
If you write any kind of action in your book (or you want to), you will absolutely benefit from this multimedia masterclass with author and martial arts instructor Alan Baxter.
The masterclass includes over 80 minutes of information packed teaching in video, audio and slide format.
It will help you improve your fight scenes for your novel so the reader is drawn into the realistic events and taken along into your fictional world.
In this masterclass, you will learn:
- How to shorten your sentences and use effective word choice to make a fight scene more realistic
- How to write a fight scene from different gender perspectives
- Writing reactions instead of action and how that affects the way the reader experiences the fight
- How to write about the different senses during a fight scene
- Why footwork and movement are so important in a fight
- Why fighting is responding to chaos and how you incorporate that into your book
- What types of blows would different characters use in what situations?
- How does someone with training fight and how can you make those scenes realistic?
- How does someone with no experience fight?
- How you can use your setting, or construct your setting to make a more effective fight scene
- How weapons change a fight
- When you fight, you get hit. How getting hit feels for your characters and how their need for recovery might affect your plot.
and much more in this information packed masterclass.
