S6E5 – Character Voice and Point of View

Authors can always be served by returning to the basics of writing. We spend so much time focusing on the grand scale of books – plot, themes, sequels – that the simple pieces of writing which make a story stand out can be lost. This month, Writing Roots is focusing on the nitty gritty, from writing dialogue and humor to developing character voice.

A character’s voice should be unique compared to the other characters in a story. Part of this comes from the author’s chosen point of view. Whether the book is written in first person or third person makes a large difference in the words and flow, not just in dialogue.

  1. I enjoyed this episode of your podcast! I also love how you posted audio along with your blog… I started posting audio on my blog this year, and so far it’s been great fun.
