writing point of view

S21E8 – Point of View: Single or Multiple?

A reader lives a thousand lives before he dies. The man who never reads lives only one. – George RR Martin

Find out what your hero or heroine wants, and when he or she wakes up in the morning, just follow him or her all day. – Ray Bradbury

S21E6 – Point of View: Third- or First-Person?

I often will write a scene from three different points of view to find out which has the most tension and which way I’m able to conceal the information I’m trying to conceal. And that is, at the end of the day, what writing suspense is all about. – Dan Brown

Finding Perspective

It’s important for writers to remember that their audience experiences the story from the narrator’s perspective. Failing to maintain a consistent perspective is a literary form of whiplash, leaving readers confused and questioning.
