I just finished reading The Power of Point of View: Make your Story Come To Life by Alicia Rasley.
This book provides an in-depth explanation of POV and how to use it. It’s one of the best I’ve read on the subject. It’s so good I’m on my second reading.
The information contained in the pages is clearly expressed and well thought out. The exercises have motivated me to try writing in first person. Usually I write in third person, but I thought it was time to expand and try something new.
Do you know of any books on writing that were helpful? I’d love to get some suggestions for further reading.
Thanks for reading . . .

You’ve probably read this one already, but if you haven’t you should definitely check out Writing the Breakout Novel by Donald Maass. I’m reading it right now, and I will probably read it twice. It’s so well written, and the examples are so clear. I’m pretty excited that a lot of this stuff makes sense to me!
Applying it is always the tricky part, but knowing how things work is at least a start.
I will probably end up reading every single one of Donald Maass’s books. 🙂
Kirsten, You are awesome. You keep providing me with new resources. Scabble, audacity, and now another book. I seem to be following along the same track as you and I really appreciate you taking the time to help me.
Can’t wait to hear what you think of Donald’s Maass’ stuff once you read it!
