What do you think about first point of view?

Which do you prefer second, third or multiple?Writers what is best POV?When I first began, writing in first person POV was frowned upon. Many bloggers insisted it was a hallmark of a novice. This was frustrating as hell because I love writing in 1st POV.

Now I understand that’s not what determines you, as a writer. Each writer is unique as is their story. A good story stands out no matter the POV.

There are pros and cons to everything, even the chosen POV. However, good stories are good and the only thing (IMHO) that waves the red flag of a novice is bad editing.

Thanks to one of my favorite bloggers for sharing…

10 Advantages of Writing a Single-POV Story (What I Learned Writing Wayfarer)  by 

Why I like first person POV…

  • Understanding who is narrating the story is simple. No flipping back and forth to refresh my memory on the who.
  • The narrator’s journey gives a closer connection to the POV and story.
  • Focus of the story, plot, and the theme are more direct.
  • Subplots and supporting characters are directly connected to the narrator.
  • Single POV calls for tighter writing. (I love writing flash.)

Bottom line there is no right or wrong POV. We all must be true to the story.

Tell me…

Writers, this is tax info you need

If you’re like me, you break out in a cold sweat this time of year.

I’m not sure about other countries, but here in the USA, taxes are due on April 15th. Yikes, it’s gonna be here before you know it.

However, thanks to Jenny Hansen, I think you may feel a little better. She explains everything you need to know (or pretty darn close) to make filing easier this year. So grab your receipts, or call your accountant after you read Jenny’s article. 

Today, instead of breaking down what I gleaned from her blog post, I’m just going to let you click and read for yourself. The subject of taxes is too important for me to screw with it. So please click and read her post. It’s a very informative and a must-read for all writers.
