I decided to start a writing blog because I don't really do it as much as I should, so I am hoping it'll force me to practice... I feel awkward though, letting people read my stuff, so we'll see how it goes.
Here's my main blog.
This is actually a brilliant writing reference for those writers whose stories involve fighting with bladed weapons. It details killing blows, both through thrusting and through cutting. It basically operates on the premise of, “Hollywood is wrong, here’s how it really works.” A bit long to trudge through, but a lot of invaluable information for those of you who want to write fight scenes and wounds a bit more realistically than, “He stabbed his enemy in the heart, killing him with one smooth stroke!” It uses medical terminology to explain why some things work and why some things are truly fantasy-only.
A bit macabre, but a good way to pursue more realistic writing in a story that requires such details.

This is highly relevant to my interests.
Oh, I can see this being useful…
