Point of View is one of fiction writing's most difficult elements to master and is vital for success. POV, the position of the narrator in relation to the story, is at the heart of writing romance. Aspire to write effective POV, and inspiration for your romance novel will follow. Authors succeed with Kathleen Rowland's "video camera on the head" technique. In this way writers look through their characters' eyes, use their voices, feel their moods, respond to human senses of taste, touch, sounds, smells, hunger, thirst, and time. With an imaginary video camera strapped on your head, you write only what is experienced from that character's point of view. Rowland's method gets your reader involved in your story by seeing/feeling the world from your character's perspective.
