C.S. Lakin has noticed a common issue in amateur writers’ work: the failure to stick with deep point-of-view.
In a nutshell, deep point-of-view is when a story is solely told in a character’s voice, not the author’s voice.
And that doesn’t mean that you must write it in first person, but it does mean you must share only what the point-of-view character is perceiving.
Lakin shares examples of violations of deep point-of-view, how to fix it, and a trick to recognizing when your text has left deep point-of-view at Live Write Thrive.
