Deep point of view is a stylistic choice writers can use throughout an entire novel or to add emotional punch to important scenes, but it isn’t an intuitive technique for many. It’s not difficult, don’t misunderstand me, but this technique requires a shift in how you capture the story for your readers.

Readers want to immerse themselves in the story in real time. They want to take the journey with your characters and experience everything the character is going through. They want the virtual reality headset.

In other words, you - the writer - need to become invisible.

Deep Point of View (POV) is like giving your reader a virtual reality headset. That’s how immersive, intense, and personal readers want to be with your story and point of view characters.

The problem with learning deep point of view is getting beyond the basics.

There's been a lot of bloggers address the sex scandal coming out of Toronto. The battle lines drawn are discouraging -- because on one side are those who refuse to acknowledge the courage it took for these women to speak up. Why did there have to be 8 come forward before the tide swung against him? Cause I've been there and to say reporting a sex crime is difficult doesn't even come close!!

I used to hate it when more experienced authors would say "write what you know." Now, I think it's brilliant advice.

Celebrated my 17th wedding anniversary on Saturday. What'd we do? Gardening. Grocery Shopping. But we did it together. Reposted the story of my disastrous honeymoon - do you have a honeymoon disaster story?

One of the blogs I help produce. Great post! “There is neither Jew nor Greek, slave nor free, there is no male or female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus” (Galatians 3:28 ESV). #ebolaoutbreak2014
