First Person Point of View
Allows only 1 perspective - The story tellers.
They can reveal only their own thoughts and
feelings.

Its often used when the motives of anyone but
the narrator need to be kept from the readers.

Third Person Subjective POV
This allows more characters to reveal what they
think and feel. Can be used with either a 3rd
person singular or multiple perspective.

It adds richness to the story because other
characters are heard from. The writer must be
clear on whos talking now.

Third Person Objective POV
Narrator can only describe things that can be
outwardly heard or seen.

www.Writania.com
This allows the narrator to stand back and tell
the story.

Omniscient Observer POV
The story is told by a third person who knows
everything about the story but is not part of it.

A writer must be careful to keep the reader
oriented to whose perspective theyre reading.

What matters is that readers can always discern
who is speaking and thinking if that fails the
entire novel fails.
