I have to tell you I'm an action junkie - not personally a daredevil or drama queen - I love to see it unfold. And I have to admit, I've been heavily influenced by this in my writing.
WHAT gives SCENES Sparks?
For me to really enjoy an action packed scene, I have to see the following list of building blocks:
- Action of course
- Body Language
- Flow (very important)
- Sentence Structure (good pacing can be built by sentence length)
Some of my favorite authors that can pull this off in multiple genre's are listed below and the books that got my blood pumping.
YA Action Packed
Mystery with Action (Just the way I love them)
Young Adult Action Packed Horror
So if you want some action - the above authors deliver in each of those genre. Support them, learn from them and enjoy.
