Epic Dragon Fight!

For the last week I’ve been complaining (here and in real life) about the “stupid dragon fight” that was all that remained of writing Dragon.  Even with my beanie baby stand-ins, I was having trouble with the physical action.

Thanks to a visit from my sister, the battle is done!

She’s a great choreographer and actress who’s not afraid to act silly in a swimming pool.  Taking advantage of her knowledge of physical movement, her mental GOTE sheets (an acting thing), and an hour in the water, we managed to come up with some really neat physical action for the climax of Dragon as well as motivation for the antagonist.  Her lack of knowledge of how magic works in the world of the book also helped with perspective, since the character who is giving us a view of the fight is not a magic user.

Now I have one more helpful act to credit to my sister when it comes to my writing!
