    So for those of you that have been following along can attest, I really enjoyed reading this instructional book, to the point where I was actually disappointed to hear that there were classes associated with it, because I would have wanted to be a part of that. As a long-time fan of action, with a history in martial arts, a library of weapons books, and a collection of both modern & classic fight movies, I can safely say that author Rayne Hall hit this one out of the park. I mean, there was [...]

    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.”

    A complete encyclopedia on writing fight scenes.This book is an excellent resources for writers of every genre, from sweet and soft romance to horror. Before reading this book, I had no idea of the difference between what Rayne calls an entertaining fight scene and a gritty one.Rayne not only goes into detail about the steps of a fight scene, but also the stylistic elements that would suit different genres. For example, a scene in a romance would be shorter, maybe more hysterical, with no splash [...]

    This is a fabulous book. Highly recommended for any novelist who needs to incorporate fighting into their work. Hall offers a vast array of weapons, fighting techniques, and settings to pique your creativity. She includes large 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 thres [...]

    At first glance, this books seems to be basic, but as you progress you find that it gets more and more specific about POVs, gender perspective, setting, as well as choice of words which work to serve different functions (spookiness, foreboding, triumph, etc.) What I regret is not having read it before writing my second book. Not too late, as I will need it more for my third one. Thank you Rayne Hall.

    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, I didn't think there would be a whole lot more 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 gen [...]

    Alberta Ross
    I thought this an excellent book - I am not a fighter, not trained in any form of violence, but there comes a time in writing when violence needs to be addressed - Rayne Hall is honest about her limitations - she has learnt some fighting skills but this is a book about writing fight scenes not about learning fighting skills.I have read it through fairly swiftly to see what there is that will aid me. A lot:) the second read will be to take in the nitty gritty details, watch the video links,and re [...]

    "Success in a fight depends on three factors: Strength, Strategy, Skill. To win a fight, your protagonist needs at least one of them. Otherwise, a good outcome is implausible." Writing Fight Scenes by Rayne Hall is an encyclopedia of writing tips, tricks, and knowledge about the writing fight scenes regardless of the genre you have in mind. It's truly a gem and an excellent reference.Hall even provides a scene from her medieval-set dark epic fantasy novel Storm Dancer and challenges the reader o [...]

    Este livro é uma leitura rápida, que pode ser feita em poucas horas. A primeira metade é para iniciantes. Escritores que decidiram escrever cenas de luta mais convincentes e não têm nenhum conhecimento prévio do assunto. Gente que já pesquisa e pensa a respeito pode achar que os primeiros quatorze capítulos não trazem muita novidade. Para quem está começando do zero, é interessante porque reúne abordagens e dicas espalhadas por aí, em outros manuais e pela internet.A autora fala so [...]

    Knowing how to write a good fight scene for a fantasy author is the equivalent of knowing how to write a love scene for a romance writer. We are constantly told to write what we know about, and yet most of us have never really been in a fight or had some kind of self-defence training. This book sets out to help you fake it.Hall breaks down fight scenes into two broad categories; gritty and entertaining, highlights the importance of location and then sets out a six part blueprint. Then she procee [...]

    This book is worthy of purchase due to the information it offers about a wide range of weaponry. It can help to give your work a touch of authenticity. I, however, found little value in this title beyond the weapon data, and further, I offer a warning to those considering a purchase. Do not have high expectations of this title because of its review scores. The author offers a choice of free books in exchange for emailing her a link to a published reader review of this title. A very shady practic [...]

    *This book was purchased by me for my own use, with no expectations of a review to be given.Writing Fight Scenes is one of Rayne Hall’s many super-specialised writingcraft books. As the name suggests, this one covers the myriad aspects of constructing fight scenes. There are several chapters with topics ranging from types of fight scenes, weapons, armour, male vs female responses and behaviour, the use of euphonics to enhance scenes, army construction, battles, and siege warfare among others. [...]

    This is the first in a series of books by Rayne Hall on different writing tips. This one is on fight scenes. I read this book as an experiment with Kindle Unlimited, and I'm quite impressed so far.This book was really useful. There is information about weapons and fighting styles, and plenty of links to outside resources such as YouTube (great fighting and weapons demonstrations). I learnt a lot about some weapons I had never thought about using in my fight scenes before, such as halberds and ax [...]

    Rayne Hall wrote this book to help you at some of the more difficult scenes in your book. How is the protagonist supposed to feel? What is he supposed to see? What is he using to fight? How much detail do you need? Hall mentions all these topics. Everything I had hoped to get out of this book, was there. There are links to youtube for scenes that illustrate what the author is talking about. There are tips, tricks and lists of do’s and don’ts for almost every topic described.Read the full rev [...]

    A very useful book.It covers fighting technique, weapons, mood-setting, fight structure and a multitude more. It's a how-to book, yes, but the questions it asks prompted ideas specific to my story. I read it with a pen and notebook in hand, and I learned a lot.I have no doubt that my fight scenes will be better because of this book.

    A good book on writing fight scenes but I felt that it could have been a lot bigger. I would love a sequel. I also think that drawings and photos would be great! The book includes webpages as reference but I think it would be nice to include some of that info in the book, instead of as an external resource. Still worth the read.

    This book is incredibly useful. I often struggled with writing fight scenes and I'm glad that this book is one of many useful tools that helps me with drafting, revising, and editing chapters. I received this book for free through winning a contest that the lovely author hosted.

    Lots of references to various weapons.

    Detailed manual with specific and useful adviceIn the very first chapter, Rayne offered advice about details to add in a fight scene that I never thought about before. That chapter alone changed the way I approached my own fight scenes. I felt I had my money's worth in that one chapter.I skipped over the specific methods and weapons I didn't need to know about for my current piece. Still, I am impressed with the array of fighting styles and weapons she covers in the book.The sections I did read [...]

    Great place to learn the basics, great place to start. The book really did help me improve my fight scenes, something I've always struggled with.So read the book for sure, but don't let the list of stereotypes stop you from being creative or writing in your own style. She lists facts about weapons which is super handy, but when she starts listing 'facts' about mystical and magic battles, I had to laugh a little.

    Whatever your genre, this is a book every author should have in his/her library. I can hold my own in a discussion about swords or guns; I've been shooting guns since I was six, and obsessing over swords since I started watching Highlander (I do have quite a collection). Even though I feel comfortable with both categories of weapons, even these sections fun and full of new ideas. My favorite Sword Blunder;"Generic sword which can hack, slash, cleave, stab, slice, pierce, thrust, cut through armo [...]

    Clear, well-edited advice as well as handy "avoid this" lists help make this a highly useful and very affordable resource. But I got more than just words when I purchased Writing Fight Scenes: at the end of each chapter is a series of video links Ms. Hall promises to update as necessary---so I can see examples of what she teaches.But this isn't just a guide for people like me who don't engage in physical combat.Ms. Hall points out it's not enough to know about how to fight, it's important to kno [...]

    This book is something of a hidden gem. For novice writers, this book contains invaluable information: different weapon types and what each is capable of (did you know that a scimitar was not as effective at piercing or stabbing as a rapier?). For the more advanced writers, some of the information might seem a little basic, ie "before the attack, the heroine holds something in her hand, but during the attack the item is forgotten." However, I found this only to be true when reading the book stra [...]

    You could use this as a prescription for writing fight scenes, which would ba a mistake, but it also gives you the tools for working out the various stages a fight scene goes through. It gets specific about edged weapons and hand to hand fighting (not so much guns as that sets the protagonists apart from each other and is over very quickly). It outlines the psychological differences between female and male characters resulting in different energy arcs (men quick to anger and quick to cool down; [...]

    Charlene Richards
    I really enjoyed reading Rayne Hall’s Writing Fight Scenes. Her writing style is easy to read and the e-book formatting is well done.This book will not replace your research.But the overview of weapons, types of fight scenes, and different type of fighters is an excellent source to begin with.Fight scene links are provided to help illustrate actions and types of fighting. I especially liked six-part structure blueprint for a scene, possible mistakes to avoid, and the euphonics section.I pulled [...]

    I have been journal writing forever and have attempted short stories but never could get the rhythm for describing a fight scene. I have been trying to write fantasy about animals in a real world and their behaviors. I love this book. It will make the difference in my writing. It is like a reference guide for all types of weapons, scenes and the focus of the fighters. It describes the pit falls or blunders of what can go wrong in a fight scene. I love the links to You Tube that gives the visual [...]

    Graham Downs
    I thoroughly enjoyed this book.Not only is it filled with great advice about how to write fight scenes of different styles ("gritty" versus "entertaining", or a mixture of the two, as Rayne Hall calls them) and genres, there are also many interesting little tidbits about fighting, history, weapons, and human responses and psychology, that I wasn't aware of.The book also contains numerous links to YouTube videos for the reader to watch, if they need examples of the different fighting styles or we [...]

    Fiona Skye
    As a writer who has a lot of fight scenes in my books, I'm always looking for tips and tricks on how to write better, more detailed and realistic fights. This book offers just that, in easy to follow language, perfect for those of us who aren't martial artists or SCA alums.While some of the advice is far too generic and not quite detailed enough for me, I did deeply appreciate the chapter on writing for women combatants and the chapter about were creatures, as well. The blueprint on how to struc [...]

    Teresa Mendes
    This is a very good book on fight scenes, you'll learn a lot about different weapons, fighters and interaction with settings. I just wish it had more concrete examples, if it had I would give it 5 stars.

    Kristene Perron
    This is an excellent resource for writers who have little to no practical experience with fighting or weapons. Even writers with a moderate level of experience will find useful information in these pages. I'm a black belt and former professional stunt performer who specialized in fight scenes, so I am quite familiar with both staging and actual fighting. I purchased this book to see if I could supplement my knowledge and was pleasantly surprised to find several useful pieces of information and l [...]
