Fight scenes have always been a struggle for me, even when just reading them I tended to gloss over the details because I couldn't quite follow what was happening. Now my story involves magic, magical weapons, and actual fighting because apparently, I'm a masochist. Honestly, it's hard for me to even articulate what I'm struggling with, but I'm going to try. How do you find the words to describe the scene? How do I make it easy for readers to follow whats happening? How can I incorporate other characters into the fight without it being confusing? Should I describe what magic is being used? Or just focus on the effects and let the reader fill in the gaps? Has anyone else struggled with this? What was hard for you and how did you get over it? Some, probably, helpful context: Guns don't exist in this world. The magical weapons are basically weapons infused with the users magic and the soul of a deceased soldier/warrior. This is because most of my characters usually relied on their magic, but because of the Big Bads, their powers have been weakened. So not only are they trying to learn the limits of their powers, but they've never used hand to hand combat. The soul of the deceased soldier/warrior instils them with the souls battle skills.
