How am I going to tell my story? Which point of view (POV) should I use. Your goal as an author is to decide on the point of view I want to use to tell my story. You must swallow hard and try to figure out Point of View”: the “Voice” in which to write your novel…so many choices! Point of View is the way the author allows you to “see” and ‘hear” what’s going on in a novel.

Writing Tip:  Your objective is find the best POV to tell your story: First, Second or Third-person point of view. Ask yourself: What serves the story best? For Example: Write a paragraph in three different point of views and see which one works best for your novel.

Your goal as an author is to “Be Specific” in your novel: A clarion call to all creative writers as you pull your readers into the “Fictive Dream” of your book. That’s the reason description is considered an art form. Description is simply a portrayal in words, of something that can be perceived by the senses.

    Writing Tip:  Your objective is to use sensory language: sight, sound, taste, feel, etc. It must be vivid. For example, keep a Descriptive journal, where you keep your writing exercises. One exercise you can do: observe and then describe the event in vivid words. Your writing must be concrete or vivid; add specific details, show sensory images, etc.
