I'm having a bit of a problem with writing fight scenes in my book. currently, most of them come off as play-by-playish, with me describing almost everything to the reader. I like how it's turned out so far, but i have a few more scenes to write, and i've just run into writer's block whenever i sit down to write it. It's gotten so bad that i went through and wrote an outline of the fight no notebook paper to go by so i can push through the writer's block... And i'm STILL getting frustrated. Here's an example of what i've written that i like: Exenwyr threw himself backwards into the air. With a burst of speed he spun around and launched skywards, blazing masses of fire and weaving them quickly into webs of flame behind him. Alsapten followed closely behind, nimbly dodging the netlike flames and easily gaining on his injured brother. “Dræcht…” Exenwyr whispered to himself; escape wasn’t an option just yet. As his brother drew near, Exenwyr rolled to the side and swung his scythe with as much force as he could put behind it. Alsapten tried to pull away, but the scythe still found its mark. A loud clang pierced the night. The impact of the scythe blade against armor pushed Alsapten higher into the air, and forced Exenwyr down towards the forest canopy. Exenwyr stared up at his brother, the moonlight reflecting off his armor. He definitely looked the hero part. “If only your deeds matched your appearance,” Exenwyr shouted, then darted into the trees. He weaved through the tree limbs hoping that they would conceal his movement, but within a matter of seconds his brother had crashed through the branches and forced him to block another flurry of attacks. Leaves and branches rained down as the two dragons carved a scar in the tree line. A branch fell and smashed against the burn on Exenwyr’s wing. He let out a cry of pain; the aching had finally returned. He rolled to the side to avoid Alsapten’s sword thrust and then fell to the ground, throwing flame and steel at his brother as he followed. Unable to right himself with his brother following so close behind, Exenwyr struck the ground hard, landing on his uninjured wing. Just as Alsapten was about to land on top of him and pin him, Exenwyr thrust a wave of flame upwards and rolled as quickly as he could to the side. The writer's block comes whenever i'm writing about more than two combatants. It just seems like i'm listing off what each person is doing, and i can't seem to make it sound interesting. "Bob punched Joe. Then Joe bit Steve. Then Steve kicked both bob and Joe. then Bob..." That's what it feels like i'm writing. Does anyone have any advice on how to make a fight involving more than two people sound interesting? should i continue with the play-by-play feel, or change the style all together, and sweep through several actions in one description? ARG, SO FRUSTRATING!
