Yosemite Romance Writers is proud to present their online workshop for January 2010.

Date: 01/04/2010 – 01/29/2010


Mastering Point of View

Instructor: Diane O'Connell

Registration deadline: 1/3/10

What’s the secret every successful author knows and most new authors don’t? It’s point of view (POV). In this workshop, Diane will show how truly understanding and mastering point of view can fix an ailing manuscript and turn a decent but lackluster novel into a page-turner. You’ll learn:

• the biggest mistakes authors make with POV — and how to avoid them

• how to use POV to liven up description, dialogue, and action

• the advantages — and drawbacks — of different POV choices

• how to choose your POV characters

• how to use POV to increase suspense and tension

Once you really know how to use this technique, you’ll never write the same way again.
