Authors, Writers, Publishers, and Book Readers
No I'm not talking about raising teenagers, although..I am talking about writing action adventure stories.
Some very good points here. It's good to turn down the volume every now and then, if just for a little bit.
In my previous novel, I had two different fights going on at the same time for the climax, each scene alternating between the fights. I still found opportunities to turn down the action for a few lines and let a character have a moment.
