Going Deep Into Deep Point of View
(Crafting Unputdownable Fiction Book 2)
By Beth Yarnall
Have you ever read a book that grabbed you on the first page and pulled you through the whole book almost nonstop to the end? Did you have a difficult time putting it down? Did you lose sleep, miss your train or bus stop or put off work so you could stay in the world the author created?
If you answered yes to all or most of the above questions then the author did his or her job. How did he do it? He used deep point of view. Deep POV is achieved when the writer so fully immerses the reader into the character’s head and heart that the writer virtually disappears, drawing the reader deeper into the story.
In this book, you’ll learn about the different kinds of POV, choosing the right POV for your scene, when, how, and why to shift POV, how to achieve deep point of view, and more.
