Here's my latest article at the Writing for Children site at BellaOnline.com:POV--Who's Interpreting EventsThanks to the reader who asked about POV. I'll discuss different types of POV and how to learn to stay in POV in future articles.
POV stands for point of view. Who is telling the story? Whose eyes are we looking through?
Please visit Writing for Children for more tips, articles, links, and discussion on how to write and publish for children.
To participate in free, fun online discussions, the site has a community forum all about Writing for Children.
If you have any questions or comments, as always, I'm glad to hear them. I answer everyone who writes to me, so if you've written and not gotten a response it means I either didn't receive your email or I couldn't send back to you. So try me again.
Feel free to pass this along to family and friends who are also interested in writing for children.
Thanks so much!
