The POV Viewpoint (26 May 2012)

How writers approach the point of view in a story is often as important as the characters or the settings themselves. It can allow readers to look at a tough social issue through the eyes of an innocent, as in To Kill a Mockingbird. Or it can range across a huge cast of characters telling a story that spreads across the country, as Stephen King did with his post-apocalyptic novel The Stand.

This week, we asked our writers at the Cafe to discuss their personal preferences when choosing the point of view for their own stories. While their answers are sure to vary, they are likely to have one thing in common: personal preference based on experience.

So grab a cup of your favorite beverage, and join us this week. And be sure to share your own point of view about the subject with our writers.

Cafe Management is run by the administration of The Confabulator Cafe. We keep things running smoothly, post stories by guest authors, and manage other boring back-end tasks.
