I can hear you shouting at the screen, the POV of the main character. And yes, I do agree. But, in this case I’m talking about the actual writing – not the characters.
A few days ago I started reading a book called “the writer’s little helper”, written by James V. Smith. As he starts the book he talks about the book hitting the technical aspects of writing fiction from the point of view of giving readers what they want in a bestseller.
In the book the writer covers pretty much every aspect of writing from the mechanics of writing to creativity, from Fiction Techniques to character, dialogue and POV, and the list goes on.
Now, I’m not going to ramble on about the book, or how I write my stories. But, I would like to write to give readers a bestseller.
So, my question to you today is in the title. In whose POV should we write? In the POV of what we want to write? Or the POV of giving our readers a bestselling book? I’d love to read your comments.
