First a pirate made a call out to lay waste to the opposition and then a monster roar crossed the airwaves with a female voice squealing "Help me." But before "ME" could end a minion army burst onto the scene. Brandishing only swords and daggers they quickly ran to the damsel's defense and turned the advancing forces toward the ocean. Laughter burst out and the enemy was taunted and jeered from the hoard just before an alien ship appeared in the sky and all were destroyed with a single flash from the bottom of the saucer.
It is like that for me when writing a scene, imagination rules. There is no limit to the number of words to make it happen so don’t be lazy and try to hold back on your readers. The details are in the words.
