Point of View, Your Story's Foundation
Point of view isn't just a she said/I said decision. Where you place a story's point of view will decide how the story can be told, the tone and voice it will have, and how your reader will experience your work. In this discussion on the importance of point of view, we'll talk about the impact this one element has on all the others, including character, setting, theme, and more. Lori will accept manuscripts for critique. Please see manuscript guidelines.
