Fighting and running away

So it seems I realise a lot of stuff when I’m thinking about writing.  Following on from getting words down, I also realised today that my character’s reaction to the fight is not particularly unique to him.  He’s attacked, and he does what I think most people unused to fighting would to; he tries to get away.  But that’s a very generic response.  I should dig deeper and figure out actually – what is the particular reaction, in that space and time, with that person – that really shows what makes this character different from most people.

I’ll get right on that, then.
