I'm testing action scenes, because my stories are meant to be two f*** tales, I don't know what is better, describe action scenes with many details, or a laconic tone, like "The hero t*** his Kris dagger and stab the thug". What do you think, florid prose or laconic one?

Heyyyy Elf :D

Could you rephrase that in something easier to understand for someone who's had half an hour's sleep and no coffee? XD

(also, for future reference, this sort of thing belongs more in Feedback on Story/Poem Ideas)

Hmm I'd say if you can find a balance between the two it might work best. Like, you give some detail to interest the reader but not too much so that they're swamped with info that detracts from the action scenes.

On the other side of it, not enough description and detail makes the prose dull to read... like, "he did this and then he did this. After that, this happened."

So yeah. A balance of the two.

BUT then again I don't often read action so my opinion probably isn't that relevant. So yeah, just bear that in mind. :P

No problem, and thank you :) I thought it was appropriate, seeing as this forum is aimed at writer's block. :P
