Lights, camera, ACTION!!!
Today we are going to discuss action. Not the hacking, slashing, shooting, speeding around the city kind of action. I present the following examples:
Tim sucked in air drinking it in large gulps.
Tim breathed heavily.
Tim panted with exhaustion.
Each of the sentences show action but which shows Tim exerting the most action. Which one has Tim presenting the clearest image of labored breathing? These kinds of descriptive sentences can elevate your writing from merely being read to being lived.
Your turn to practice. Write a short story based on why Tim was out of breath in the first place. Your goal here is to be descriptive, word choice matters. Finish this action scene.
