Voice and POV
“All I have is a voice.”
― W.H. Auden ―
Overview and goal for POV and voice. How to find your voice. How to make your voice original and sing.
Getting To Know You
In our free, 30 minute phone consultation, we'll take a look at your project and determine your goals for your book and as an author. We'll design a focused plan for the next four weeks based around your specific writing needs so that you have a clear idea of what you want and how to get it.
What’s the difference between your voice (as an author) versus point of view from a character? What is the difference between your voice as an author and the narrator? How to tell the difference? How do you establish your own writing voice? How do you discover your own writing voice? Who’s saying what (you or character) and how do you know/how can you tell?The Many POV: 1st, 2nd, 3rd - Experiment with POV in your manuscript. How does the story really want to be told? Listening To Your Characters: This is their story. Let them guide you. (A Perfect Pairing course)
5 Love Languages of Writing: What’s your love language? (ie: how do you write/what’s your voice/tone/etc)
Listening To Yourself/Staying True: Part of finding your voice. How to trust your voice. How to let it guide you. How to stay true to that with others telling you something else. What kind of writer are you? Stay true to that. IE: I am a literary novelist. I tried writing commercial, but this is where my passion lies. This is my voice. This is what comes out. These are the stories that I have in me.
