Point Of View, Marilyn L Hart

Take six people and put them in a room and sit them around a table. In the center of the table have a bowl with different subjects on it. One at a time have each person take out a piece of paper and read it out loud. Then have everyone express their point of view on the subject. I guarantee, there will be six different points of view. Some of them may be similar, but there will be variances. We all have our own point of view and thankfully we live in a country where we are free to express them.

In writing, point of view is different. When plotting out your story, you need to find out whose point of view you are going to be writing the story from. Then you need to decide if you are going to write it in the first, second or third person's perspective.  You need to write consistently through the story from that viewpoint.
