Savvy Authors

I'm guest blogging at Savvy Author on Deep POV. Hope you can stop by.

  1. Just back from Savvy Author to say you really did a great job of explaining Deep POV! I don't usually stop to think what POV I should use in any given story. I just start writing and see what feels right, but from your description, Deep POV is always applicable. It's redundant to say it adds so much depth to the reader's experience, but it does!

  2. What confuses writers is even Deep POV isn't always a good choice. It's all about knowing when to and when not to use it.

    Thanks for stopping by, Carol.

  3. Example: it would work for big epics where the location is often the protagonist. Like Michener's Alaska, Texas etc. Or books where the technology is the star. Matris. But for the way you write, Carol, deep pov would add a dimension that would deepen the connection between reader and hero. At least that's the way I see it. But even I love books where deep pov isn't present. Like Lawrence Sanders' work. The First Deadly Sin, etc.

  4. I've been in Deep POV all my life, but could never explain it as well as you did on that site where ya gotta register. Meant to say your grandkids look like nice kids, & I'm sure you share my point of view on that topic.

  5. The funny thing was I had started using deep POV long before it had a name. I wanted to dig deep into my protagonist and live the story through her. I read a book when I was probably 15 that left me feeling like I'd been inside the character's head the entire story. I never forgot that feeling. It was a connection I didn't understand at the time.

    Thanks, Dave. Selena and Reece are exactly that: nice little people.
