If you like to read or write these kind of scenes (in the vein of thrillers, crime, spy novels rather than 300-esque battle scenes) and you're willing to help me work out some issues with mine, I would really appreciate some advice over PM. I say PM because I don't want to give all the details of my scene here where the lovely people who will beta read for me might see it. I want it to be a surprise for them. In short, I'm struggling to make it plausible and realistic that my protagonist wins a fight when all the odds are stacked against him. I'm much more of a character writer than an action writer and I don't read a lot of fight-y stuff, so I am having a lot of trouble with it. Edit: Just to clarify, I'm not looking for critique on a scene I've already written. I need ideas for how the scene will go, then I can write it. So what I really need is someone to brainstorm with me (mostly for me, I have virtually no ideas...) Even if you don't consider yourself an expert, any advice is very welcome Thanks in advance.
