Sunday's Links to Writing & Marketing Blog Posts

By: Amy McElroy

Agents, editors, publishers, and mainstream readers tell writers to engage readers by the first line of the work. Then, to maintain each reader’s attention, the writer must never let up until the final word. One essential part of that job is to choose the correct point of view for the story—the perspective from whom the story is being told—and to maintain that point of view to keep the reader’s attention focused on the story, the characters, and the setting.

While point of view is an essential element of the story, done correctly, the reader should never even be aware of the concept within the work. The point of view should be so effortlessly clear
that the reader should never even think to question it.
