This could come under many of the development categories on the forum, but I felt like this category encompasses every aspect of the action sequences in question. I know there is an almost identical thread about action sequences here: http://www.writingforums.org/threads/writing-combat-personal-and-beyond.128795/ but having another post dedicated to certain parts of an event with combat in would benefit the community, myself included. Firstly, how do you, personally, go about constructing an action sequences? (Whether the scene is purely action to forward the plot or whether it is there to convey some sort of emotion, etc.) Secondly, and definitely a very valuable point, what is your attitude towards fight scenes in fantasy novels that you read? (Whether or not you enjoy reading them.) Thirdly, if you write them, how long do they tend to be, and in how much description do you like to show the character(s)' movements? (OF COURSE, IT VARIES, BUT JUST AS A GENERAL FIGURE IF POSSIBLE.) Lastly, do you prefer an external overview of the action, from an omniscient perspective where you show the events unfolding from an almost god-like perspective, or do you take more pleasure from reading/writing from a very narrow point of view, such as being from the character's vision, which can allow for more detail? Thank you for reading P.S: feel free to ignore the poll.
