How To Write Action in Fiction

What is going on!

What are the characters doing?!

Action has layers (like ogres). Great action scenes and sequences have deeper meaning to them.

Every action must be used to tell more about the characters, their feelings, context, missing context, say what is unsaid, and -in its own way- tell a story.
