Hi Lupe!

When I'm writing a particular scene such as a fight scene, I don't practice the moves first. For me, I see the characters in my head like I'm watching them on a TV screen. I can see how close they are to each other, the look on Mason's face, his determination, the choice he has made to have a gun on Sarah. I can see Sarah's face and feel the heat of the day pasting her shirt to her back.

When she edges closer, I see that and write what I see. Then, as she lunges forward, I write those movements as they happen. None of that is planned or outlined. I let the characters battle it out and watch as it happens. The one thing I do know is I want Sarah to walk away from that situation and I write it in a way that she does. Although when I started writing that scene I didn't know she would break Mason's nose and arm. That was something that just happened as it happened. Then, for the rest of Mason's scenes I had to remember those injuries.

Hope that answers your question and thanks for asking!! ;-)

An interesting read for sure, but not exactly what I was looking for. The book contained mini bios of the authors with limited advice for other writers. Overall, that's great and why I gave it four stars, but I was expecting something else.

“We leave our home,” she pointed upwards, “and come here. When we’re done down here in the swamp of humanity, whatever you want to call it, we go home. To our real home. We all do. No choice. Whether you believe it or not.”
Jonas Saul, The Sarah Roberts Series Vol. 7-9

“She’d been in Budapest for over four weeks and her sister Vivian had been silent since her arrival. All Sarah had was the final note her dead sister made her write telling her that Armond Stuart had fled to Hungary.”
Jonas Saul, The Crypt

“was just after two in the morning. She hoped that the dress she wore would attract the wrong kind of attention. She wasn’t trying to look like a prostitute, just vulnerable. The knee-length dress was decorated with a pretty floral pattern. It was the shortest dress she would ever wear. Her top wasn’t revealing at all. The red angora sweater gave nothing away. Jeans were”

“Myron reached for the phone and dialed Win's number. After the eighth ring he began to hang up when a weak, distant voice coughed. "Hello?"
Win?"
Yeah."
You okay?"
Hello?"

Yeah."
What took you so long to answer the phone?"

Ed Rambeau Thanks for accepting my friend request, Daryl. You seem like an interesting person and quite a prolific author as well, so feel free to tell me more about yourself and perhaps we can grow to become even greater friends. I, myself, am a singer/songwriter/actor who has recently turned author. My 2 top ten recordings were CONCRETE & CLAY (as a singer) and NAVY BLUE (as a writer)...both in the early 1960's.

Regards, and have a great day, Ed
