The Art of Skirting

stockvault-rock-painting153155Limitations. Every author has them.

Me? Hand-to-hand combat scenes. I avoid writing them like, well, a roundhouse kick to the old kisser. However, informed Chloe Stowe audiences will know that I’ve included them in my novels numerous times. How?

I skirt the issue. Getting around the obstacle without brushing its volatile little hide is an art. Sure, stealth and subterfuge are required to master this skill but so is hard-baked desire. Thankfully writers have that in spades.

Until tomorrow…


Post-note: My ever-evolving panic disorder has taught me this skirting skill painfully well. However, I suggest avoiding this method of “art” school at all costs.
