Definitely a goal of mine.


What scenes do you find the most difficult to write?

I'm okay with short and not real plot.

I was thinking of a multi-chapter and my issue was...i have a problem...how to solve it. I'm not great with the "action" part.

Action is so freakin' hard and I find I get bored with either trying to write it and even sometimes trying to read it. Maybe because I have difficulty picturing it in my head? But yea, never good when an action scene bores the writer/reader.

Maybe we can help you fix the problem?

I get sad when my favorite fics are only one chapter and I know the author can do so much to expand the story or the world.

I'll definitely continue to post here when I get stuck on things.

The current main issue is writer's block and trying to get unstuck and back into writing...

I do have one fic that I need to figure out how to end it and just post. Just a one-shot.

Action is hard but maybe an exercise to do is act out the scene yourself. Like improv.

Or watch your favorite action scene.

And to help with writer's block, do like Mad Libs. Pull words out of a hat and make up a scene. Like a warm up. Doesn't even have to end up in a story.

I actually really enjoy these 3-word prompts here. It's getting me in the mood to try to ask for prompts on tumblr! So this board is definitely helping out!

And the further you spend away from the story the more you become uninterested in writing

I also have to get it in my head than an action scene doesn't need to be 10 pages long. It can be effective just at 2 pages.

J.K. Rowling said write everyday, even if it's only a sentence that doesn't even get used.

Exactly.

She is right about that. Write something even if it stinks.

It's also hard to infuse emotion into a fight, especially when a whole book has been building up to it. All action scenes should just be given to Pierce to write. He seems to have an easy time with them.

Then why does he take years to write?


I'm kidding. He does do a great job with action scenes.
