In many of today’s novel, the writer wants to delve deeper with their stories giving the reader a more in-depth look into who the characters are and what they’re thinking. The technique being used is called deep POV (point of view).
I remember when it was first suggested that I do this with my fiction novel. I had not earthly clue what that was. I understood POV to be what character the scene would be told from whether it was first person, third person, omniscient. However, deep POV was a new concept for me.
Then I was told about Jill Elizabeth Nelson’s book called Rivet Your Readers with Deep Point of View. One weekend she offered this book for free so I picked it up. It was a quick read, but I had a better understanding, at least, of what it was. However, I still wasn’t exactly sure how to implement it.
Over the past couple of years I’ve been working on this and slowly but surely getting better at it. Have I completely mastered it yet? Nope. But that’s okay. I know if I keep working at it I will become good at it.
