Whose point of view is best?
Do you struggle to decide what will be the best POV in which to write any given story you are writing? Do you ever read your MS and wonder if the POV is quite right?
Way back in The Dragon's Pen's earliest days (last year) I wrote a post on POV. If you haven't read it you can see it here.
Yesterday at the blog Writer Unboxed, Sophie addressed the issue of POV from an other angle entirely. While I looked at what the different POVs are, Sophie looked at what they can do for our writing.
Sophie shows us how thinking about the story we want to write can point us to the POV that will best support that particular story.
She asks about the personality of your main character, the genre of your story, the atmosphere you are seeking to create and shows how the POV you use can make all the difference.
She has some real gems to share so check it out. Read it here.
Nicola Morgan over at Help! I need a Publisher has just written a timely post about POV so for more info follow the link. And another one here.
