  1. I think it helps to learn about the things that can happen when near death. Did you know if you get punched hard enough, you can have a seizure? I learned that watching MMA fights. Handy, huh?

  2. ill use an example of what to do and what not to do (it works best for me)
    NOT TO DO:
    Dave and his twin Alex were driving fast along the roads. Their car stopped when another slammed into them.
    TO DO:
    Cars were a blur on the highway as Dave and his twin Alex drove despertly to their destination. Out of nowhere, with a piercing screech, a car violently swerved into theirs.
    See the difference? Both say the same thing, but the second one has much more description. If I were you, I’d write it “normally” in laymans terms, but when editing, break out the thesaurus and improve the words. Its all about vivid imagery.
