The Ripening Sun dGe numbers of links to external sources especially YouTube videos which are very helpful and she also has an extensive list of further reading recommendations I give four stars instead of five mainly because the number of typos in the book exceeded by shrugging off threshold and because the book winds up being an overview instead of an authoritative guide It is nevertheless a valuable starting point for anyone writing fiction with these kinds of elements As a martial artist with moderate proficiency in three separate weapons four if you include guns and also a LARPer who LARPS in costume with weapons Iidn t think there would be a whole lot this book would add to my existing knowledge but I found it to be a succinct straightforward guide to planning out a fight scene for YOUR type of novel contemporary fantasy thriller historical etc and it covered a ton of things I had never considered before outside the context of my own genre This book appears to be eliberately set up to work well as a reference manual to go back to after you have read it to apply to whatever work in progress you may have Do you need a fight scene between a non skilled female protagonist in a magical historical style setting Against a larger opponent A male Perhaps simply a cad or is he setting Against a larger opponent A male Perhaps simply a cad or is he to kill her What weapons would such characters use This book is set up so you can easily go to the table of contents find the information in the sub headings refresh your memory and select your ream irk for your heroine find the information in the sub headings refresh your memory and select your ream irk for your heroine pull out of her leather bodice Will her clothing help her or get in her way What problems would such a lass encounter in a fight It s all here With no extra wordinessIf I was to mention any etractor for the book it s that there are no written examples of fight scenes themselves I would educt half to a full star for that but then this book had links to numerous YouTube videos with live action fight seuences so I would ADD an extra half or full star for those alone so I will be still averaging this out to a five star review A complete encyclopedia on writing fight scenesThis book is An Excellent Resources For excellent resources for of every genre from sweet and soft romance to horror Before reading this book I had no idea of the ifference between what Rayne calls an entertaining fight scene and a gritty oneRayne not only goes into Becoming Beauty detail about the steps of a fight scene but also the stylistic elements that would suitifferent genres For example a scene in a romance would be shorter maybe hysterical with no splashing blood or gore and injuries that allow the hero and heroine the opportunity to get closer like bandaging up the wounds or tender looksMeanwhile thrillers and horror are the grittiest involving Ghost Rider drawn out suspense and maximum carnageMy current work in progress is a romance thatoesn t involve any fight scenes but I can see how this book would help with the future romantic suspenses and historicals I have in mindThe book is so rich and full of information that it is best used as a reference It goes into weapons locations types of fighters the The Widow of the South differences between men and women level of training military fighting and even animals and paranormal creaturesEach chapter ends with a list of blunders to avoid Very useful to not look ridiculous For example sword maidens in belly baring come and gut me costumesIf you re writing any type of book with tension and conflict in the plot then you owe it to yourself toownload Writing Fight Scenes both to brainstorm fight ideas and to check that you haven t made a laughable mistakeNow that I know how comprehensive and valuable Rayne Hall s writing books are I m going to buy another one Rayne also holds online workshops for writers You can find out by going to Writing Workshops with Rayne Women shriek and get hysterical before fighting Men trade terse insults like Bastard Just one of many gems from this one Also when opposite sex police officers fight together the woman finishes off the fight while the man is there to help her so others won t see her cry.
