It’s summertime here and the sun is shining. My outdoor office is my favourite place to be and my fingertips are flying across the keys working on new stories. Today, I am guest-posting over at Kristen Lamb’s blog. I would love for you to send Kristen some blog love and leave a comment!
Want to raise the stakes for your character through internal conflict? Deep POV is a great technique to bring out this tension because it allows the reader deep into the character’s psyche and allows for an intense examination of their motivations and morals.
Drawing a line in the sand, giving your character a personal vow, can create the kind of inner turmoil that drives a character to outrageous page-turning decisions and mistakes. Vows also give insight into backstory and help define character voice.
This is just ONE appendix lesson from my two week intensive course on learning to write in Deep POV. Visit Kristen’s blog to read the whole post.
Been told you should learn Deep Point Of View? Had an editor or critique partner tell you to “go deeper” with the emotions in your fiction?
