Convincing a reader that he or she can “become” the narrating character might seem a little like magic—but it simply means learning to use specific writing techniques. WRITING DEEP VIEWPOINT includes chapters that explain various points of view, the way time flows in a story, the difference between “showing” and “telling” as the story unfolds, and how viewpoint affects nearly every craft-level writing skill. WRITING DEEP VIEWPOINT is full of “how to” and “how not to” examples, suggestions, and tips. It’s personal and helpful, a quick read that can have a lasting impact.
According to NYT bestselling author Davis Bunn, “There is no single component of the writing craft as vital to good fiction, and to developing an artistic voice, as point of view…. WRITING DEEP VIEWPOINT helps establish a foundation from which a novelist can spread artistic wings and fly. Highly recommended.”
