Day 48 - 2797 Words - Action is Easy

Action scenes are easy to draft, because you can put it all in. Those moments when you're not sure which option to take - odds are your character isn't sure either. Write that uncertainty in. Your character can have all of your ideas.

This can also give you suspense moments as your character struggles with one problem after another, barely inching closer to her goal. You get natural description moments, as your character's senses are heightened, and she looks around for options.

(Yes, you will have to edit later. There is such a thing as dragging things out too much.)
