  1. i've definitely written my fair share of fight scenes. People tell me i do them well, which is always kind of surprising to me. But i am a huge fan of short, choppy sentences in fight scenes, and giving just enough specificity for the reader to follow along without getting lost

  2. Thanks for having me!

    Short, choppy sentences definitely help with fighting scenes, Sarah! :)
