For today’s prompt, we are looking at Point of View in novels.
This is an aspect of novel-writing I am struggling with as I attempt to write my first book. When talking to other authors, some find it easier to write in the first person, saying that it allows them to become more immersed in their character’s lives.
Others say they prefer to write in the third person and the general advice is that this is the recommended POV for first time writers.
For today’s exercise, take a book from your book shelf and open it to any page.
Whatever the current point of view of the page, re-write it from the other point of view (if it’s in first person, make it third. If it’s in third, make it first.)
How did you find this exercise?
