Hey all! I’m doing well in terms of writing. My tracking sheet is saying I’m a little ‘low’ for the week, but I was hit with stress and really not feeling well, so I’m okay with having a ‘slow’ week. That and I don’t know how to track the words for my visual novel project, not accurately at least. Remember to check out my Redbubble shop for cool writing shirts, stickers, and more!
Anyway, today’s post might seem redundant since I recently revisited point of view in narrative. But I’m not talking in the terminology sense, but in how different they are in terms of actual writing. I’ve run into people who seem to think that switching from 3rd to 1st or vice versa is just a matter of changing pronouns – and it really isn’t. There’s a lot more that goes into it.
There’s a reason that point of view is one of the first things I decide when I’m going to start writing. Because if I get past the planning stages and into the writing, changing to a different point of view is, well, annoying.
