You work so hard to choreograph your action scenes, to get them sequenced, and to show the action on the page. The last thing you want to do is slow the pacing of those action scenes with stuff like embodying your character.
Recently, I explained how to embody your point of view character. A reader sent me a question after that post, because he was wondering how all that sensory detail factored into action scenes. Wouldn’t it slow down the action?
It seems that way, doesn’t it? But the good news is that it won’t. Embodying your point of view character will enhance any scene, including your action scenes. In this video I explain how. I read a few more paragraphs from Dark Corners in Skoghall to illustrate the point and break it down. Then I distill everything into a 60 Second Writing Tip for you.
