So, you all are writers right? What extremes have you gone to write a scene, either in a personal novel or in a RP post? Me, personally, was once writing about a spear-fighter. Now, I don't have much experience with spears, so I was at a loss at how to write a specific fight scene. What did I do? Well, I went outside with a broom in my front yard and fought invisible foes! (I'm 27, mind you) My neighbors thought I was retarded! (They're not far off) So what have you done? Hiked 50 miles in the woods to find a spot to describe in a fantasy? Kill a man just to watch him die? ........DISCUSS!!!!
