Comic-Con How-To: Anatomy of a Fight Scene, Part One
Stories are about conflict. And there is no purer form of conflict than a good ol' fisticuffs-style brawl. (Or sword fight, laser battle, western shootout...) Yet, how to put that much action down on paper and not only make it believable, but enjoyable and exciting to read? Award-winning author Maxwell Alexander Drake brings you deep inside the violence, breaking it down piece by piece, and giving you some tricks you can use to create more realistic and exciting fights.

Comic-Con How-To: Anatomy of a Fight Scene, Part Two
Understanding when and how to use physical conflict in your story is all well and good. But how do you write it? How do authors paint such a vivid, action-packed fight scene that readers can "see" in their mind using only the written word? Award-winning author Maxwell Alexander Drake peels back the mystery and looks at using words to craft action that your readers will not simply read, but experience.
