Every story is written using a particular point of view.
The story might be from the point of view of one or more characters, like first person or third person limited, or from a narrator’s point of view, like third person omniscient.
It can be daunting to decide what point of view to use for a story and even harder to get it right.
The problem is that if you make a mistake and switch points of view mid-chapter or even mid-paragraph, you will knock the reader out of the story.
You need them to suspend disbelief and become involved in the story.
But the point of view is such an essential part of the story that readers can’t ignore it if you get it wrong.
Are you confused about point of view? we’ll talk you through limited vs. omniscient viewpoints, the pros and cons of both, and how to choose the right viewpoint for your story.
