Point of View

Our point of view determines what we tell, how we tell it, and what the action means.

Choosing POV
  • Someone who will be impacted by action
  • Who can be present in the conclusion
  • Who gets most of the good scences
  • Provide unique outlook
  • Whose head are you most interested in inhabiting
How many POVs? – As few as possible
  • Fragments storyline
  • Makes story feel less plausible
Gems from Nancy Kress in Write Great Fiction.

Write Every Day!
