In episode five, co-host Terrance Zepke and I talk about the view.
No, we’re not talking about that boring TV show. We’re talking about the view that will decide what your reader sees as he or she reads your novel.
Who gets to tell your story?
The two main ways are as first person (I) and third person (he/she). Yes, there is a second person POV (you), but it is rarely used because it is a difficult concept to successfully achieve.
So how do you decide which you should use? Should you use more than one? Can you use more than one? Listen to the show and find out.
Here are some popular examples of books written in each of the different voices, or POVs:
Robinson Crusoe – Daniel Defoe
The Hunger Games – Suzanne Collins
Lord of the Rings – J.R.R. Tolkien
A Christmas Carol – Charles Dickens
Choose Your Own Adventure series – R.A. Montgomery
