So I've recently been working on a story. I previously had it shelved for months, but got around to editing it at long last. I've got most of it down, like the introspective scenes, dialogue, etc. There's one thing that's been a real pain in the ass lately though. And it's battle scenes. For the life of me, I can't seem to write an actually engaging battle scene to save my life. Every battle scene that I write comes off as sounding forced, impossible or plain boring. I just can't seem to capture the adrenaline rush, the oomph that you'd expect a battle scene to have. I've read Swimdraconian's Circular Reasoning, Inert's Patriot's Dawn, Menace's... everything, but I can't get it down pat. So what's your advice DLP? How do you write battle scenes, and write them well? P.S. I checked beforehand if a similar thread exists, so forgive me if I overlooked one.
