“You can make more friends in two months by becoming interested in other people than you can in two years by trying to get other people interested in you.” - Dale Carnegie, How to Win Friends & Influence People Have you ever been standing alone in a room full of strangers? You don't recognize anyone. You're not even sure you belong there, and you have no idea what to say. You think about darting for the door or at least jumping on your phone so you don't look like a total loser. Or maybe just the thought kept you from showing up in the first place. I've been there.

5 Essential Tips for Writing Killer Fight Scenes | Literary Productivity | Scoop.it

In reality, though, readers tend to skip over fight scenes – skimming the long, tedious, blow-by-blow descriptions in favour of getting back to the dialogue and character-driven drama that truly engages them in the story.
