Choosing how you tell a story can be confusing. With help from the Fussy Librarian, Zach and J. explore how to determine the best point of view for your work. You will discover the importance of strong narration and more:

  • Zach’s favorite app for keeping track of everything he needs to do + some of his top tips for using the app effectively
  • The importance of being realistic about what you can accomplish in any given day and prioritizing your most essential tasks
  • How point of view (POV) works in fiction writing and what the different types of point of view are
  • How POV expectations vary by genre
  • The POV the guys usually choose for their collaborative work, what they do in their individual work, and why they’ve made these choices
  • How J. and Zach feel about different points of view in the stories they read
  • Why you need to make this decision early on in the planning process
  • How to decide what the best POV is for your own work
