I got my tunes, my mind is clear, and my characters are at war. One of my WiPs involves a war. Full, blown out war. This is where I'm at in my revisions. My first draft sadly described this, so now I'm filling in the details of this war. I'm trying to come up with words to describe the sights, sounds and smells war. I've never been in a war, so I have to leave it up to my head or the History channel. Research, as usual, is key. I can write a romance scene quicker than I can blink, but war and fighting, well that takes a little more effort. So, other than research which I'm engaging myself in, and some rockin' kick butt music, I want to know your thoughts on writing a war. I think I'm getting better at one on one fights scenes, but hundreds of people. . . eh. . .yeah.
Any interesting words to consider?
I'm writing a war scene, so I'm keeping it short. Have a great day!
