    Newbie trying to write sword fighting- help appreciated

    So I've got a bit of a problem- I'm writing my mc fighting a minor character. The thing is, I'm new to writing fight scenes period. I've got a little bit of an idea, but finding resources on sword fighting and writing it is tricky, and harder than I thought. Does anyone have any tips on writing sword fights? Thank you so so much!!!! I suppose I'm looking for tips on pacing, how much action to include versus character's thoughts, and how to show progression in a fight scene, so it's not boring, and it looks like there's actually a level of danger. Thanks again!

    - ps. also sadly, I can't take sword fighting lessons cause I'm in school. but thanks for the suggestion!
