You know that thing people always tell you to do when you write a critical review of a novel? "Go try writing your own" they always say. Well that's what I did. After battling through procrastination, a 10-hour day job and pure unadulterated laziness I managed to squeeze out 7, 3 thousand word chapters and when going back and re-reading them, I figured that I could add more depth to my writing. Besides general dialogue improvements and improving my vocabulary and imagery, the main thing I wanna focus on is combat mechanics that would make the reader feel like they're witnessing super high skill gameplay. So I came here to ask for recommendations of content that I can study to familiarize myself with basic combat mechanics such as swordsmanship and barehanded CQC. I'm currently taking in what I can from youtube videos in my spare time at work. In terms of magic theory, I want to craft that completely on my own and see what sparks I can squeeze out by knocking all two of my braincells together. THANKS.
