If you struggle with POV, this article will be a great asset. The author goes into great detail with easy understanding on how to write correct POV, and also helpful is her explanations of how NOT to write POV.

Go ahead and check it out. I promise you will love this little gem:)


  1. That is a great POV article, thanks for sharing.

    I also wanted to thank you for stopping by my interview yesterday. You wrote that you are in search of a critique partner. A great community of pbs writers on facebook is the 12 x 12 in 2012. You may have luck there! Good luck to you!


    1. You're welcome, Jennifer! I really enjoyed your interview:)

  2. Hi from the Buccaneer Blogfest! I'm Laura from Thanks for your comment on my bookshelf earlier this week.

    I would agree with your POV on POV. What's up with authors skipping around to all the different characters' thoughts on every little thing? I find that very frustrating, as a reader, especially when it doesn't seem to be done for any particular reason. I just read a book where every member of a dysfunctional family had their say, one chapter at a time. Maddening! I much prefer books that pick one view and stick with it, as "conventional" as that may seem. ;)

Friday's post

Hey all:) I'm taking today and this weekend off. A very, VERY dear, sweet, and close friend of my family passed away this week. And we just got word that his wife's brother, (whom I love like a mother) died last night. So she is dealing with the death of her husband and her brother. Enjoy your weekend, my friends, and hold those you love close. You never know when they will be gone. I will return on Monday, and will have workshop classes every day next week.

Then, I have to sit back and realize, maybe I'm trying to change the wrong things. I mean, seriously, I can't change time, slow it down. That's an impossible task, so why do I try so hard to stop it? To time back, or slow it down. It. Can't. Be. Done. When I concentrate on the impossible, I overlook the the possible.

I'm no longer going to worry about the things out of my reach. I'm no longer going to concern myself with things I can not change. I'm no longer going to devot
