Do you want readers to be so caught up in your book that they forget they’re reading?
Then you need deep POV.
Deep POV takes the reader and places them inside of our characters—hearing their thoughts, feeling their emotions, and living the story through them. Compared to other writing styles, it builds a stronger emotional connection between the reader and our characters, creates the feeling of a faster pace, and helps avoid point-of-view errors and telling rather than showing.
In Deep Point of View, writing instructor and fiction editor Marcy Kennedy brings her years of experience into showing you how to write deep POV. You’ll learn specific, practical things you can do immediately to take your fiction to the next level.
Each book in the Busy Writer’s Guide series is intended to give you enough theory so that you can understand why things work and why they don’t, but also enough examples to see how that theory looks in practice. In addition, they provide tips and exercises to help you take it to the pages of your own story, with an editor’s-eye view. Most importantly, they cut the fluff so that you have more time to write and to live your life.
What a terrific help for writers!
I thoroughly enjoyed Marcy Kennedy’s Deep Point of View! I have studied a lot of writing books over the years and this is one of the very best! And it is THE best book on POV and correcting deep point of view errors in existence. Terrific links to valuable resources plus a nimble sense of humor plus example after example: talk about show & don’t tell! Fabulous! Buy a copy for yourself. Borrow other writer’s iPads and computers and such and download a copy for them! The planet will thank you! Scott Azmus
