Few topics cause writers as much consternation as point of view. What is it, exactly? Which one should you use? How are they different? Do you have to pick only one? And why is it so easy to go so wrong?
To be fair, much of the confusion about point of view comes from writers being told a bunch of stuff about it that’s simply not true. Point of view is not just about pronouns. It’s the magic carpet of consciousness that transports the story that’s in your head to its new, forever home inside your reader’s head.
Sound deep? It is! Join me for what I hope is an illuminating discussion of that most metaphysical of writing craft topics.
My weekly livestream is on Wednesdays at 1 PM Pacific. Come live and participate! Or catch the replays here on the blog.
