I'm writing this from my phone and I suck at texting, so this will be short.
Strange as it may seem, I have trouble writing medieval weapons combat - I'm fine with guns, but I haven't had that much experience swinging things. I rely on others for insight.
I have a sequence in a story where a 17-year-old is teaching a woman of 21 how to use weapons. He's proficient, she isn't. I see the conflict being his from within, knowing he has to physically hurt her to teach her. She accepts that, but still every time she is hurt, he reacts by resisting the lessons he has to teach. She then gives him hell, because she wants to learn.
Any insight on this process would be appreciated.
