      Sometimes I hope that by rushing ahead and just getting SOMETHING down, I can always fix it during the rewrites. In cases like this, though, I want to rush to just get it over with. And sometimes I just stop, too. 🙂

    Hmm… Maybe The Rock? It’s a cool movie.

    When I write violent scenes out of my comfort zone, I use substitution. I’m killing hate/cruelty/cruel acts, for example, instead of a person. Not sure if that helps any, but figured I’d share. 🙂 Good luck!

      Thanks! That’s a cool way to look at it, August. It does help, at least for future projects. With this scene though, what I need to get right is what it sounds like, and to get the fear they’re feeling as close to real as I can. 🙂

    RWA has a great group to help with this sort of thing. I can look it up for you if your interested. A lot of movies are unrealistic. But I still love to watch them when I’m looking for inspiration. Guns have to work true to nature or you might hear from readers. Other moves, if your fairytale characters aren’t fully human, you can fudge it. I’ll put my thinking cap on. Feel free to message me. Sorry I’ve been more quiet lately.

      I didn’t even catch the ‘your.’

      I’ve pretty much decided to just do the fear angle in the story, and no real details about the weapons. I had a couple of good ideas for changes that should make it work out well.

      Don’t worry about being quiet. I’m there, too…but more because I’ve fallen into a funk or something. Not quite burned out, but having to back off. Not sure I’ll ever figure out the whole writing/blogging/social networking conundrum. All I know is that if I want to be productive with the writing, I need to back off social media. 🙁

        Yeah, it’s not an easy balance. But I was referring more to our messages.

          Oh I won’t back off that. Just FB in general, Twitter. If I leave FB open it’s like something in my brain shuts down as far as getting any writing done. And someone reminded me that NaNo starts in a week. I may or may not join in this year. Not sure I’m disciplined enough, but it might help get me in gear. 🙂

    It has been a long time since I’ve seen the movie but maybe G.I Jane could work. I know you see alot of the training she had to go through for the movie. Also check out a few episodes of J.A.G I know they did some special ops in a lot of their episodes and the violence is gonna kept to a minimum because it was a prime time tv show.

      Oh I LOVED J.A.G.! One of my favorite series, and I was bummed when it went off the air.

      I think I’ve actually figured out how to get through that scene, and may have the first draft ready to send to you tomorrow. Yay! That means maybe one more chapter…and possibly an epilogue.

      And then it’s time to edit. Sigh… 🙂
