So by all means don’t take this as the end-all, be-all Way
To Do It, or think that I’m telling you your way is wrong. It isn’t!
This post is my attempt to quantify the process I’ve developed over the
years, because I often see people bemoaning having to write action scenes, and
lately my Sith Apprentice: Darth Venge series has gotten a lot of positive
feedback on its action sequences. I’m
hoping to be helpful rather than didactic.
With that said, let’s break down the steps I go through, accompanied
by a scene from one of the stories in th Venge series where the eponymous
protagonist fights four elite mercenaries known as Mandalorians. (Continued under the cut.)
As long you have people who really hate you, you can be sure there will also be people who love you.
Do what you love. Do what makes you happy and screw the haters. There will always be people who will try to discourage you, make you feel bad or insecure about your work. Don’t you ever let it get to you. If anything, those people are weak, foolish and unsatisfied with themselves. You go do what you love and don’t let anyone stop you.
