I have mentioned that I believe the Universe is secretly a writer, yes? Yeah, that opinion hasn’t changed. 😆 As a writer, POV is something I have to be very conscious of. I normally write in 3rd POV Past (or whatever the technical grammatical term for that is). When I started the Nightriders, the H/H demanded I write in 1st POV Past. So I did. It was hard, but ultimately it was the right decision. Then there’s Deep POV. I took a class in it. With 1st, you automatically get deep into a character’s psyche. Or you should. In 3rd, you have to dig a little deeper. Okay pun intended. 😉
Sometimes, when writing a scene in one character’s POV, I discover it’s not working. I’ll switch to the other character’s and if it works, awesome. If it doesn’t, then I have to rethink the scene. WHY isn’t it working? Did I take a wrong turn or is it one of those scenes I just need to toss out and go someplace else? Good questions with answers that will make a story better. Hopefully. And as an aside? This is totally true about real life too. Just sayin’… 😉
Sometimes, Silver, finally seeing things from someone else’s perspective can totally change your life.
Which, sometimes, explains exactly why they’re there.
Like in the song, Silver, you know, “Spooky,” but it sounds like Spoo-kay.
