~ Step 22 ~


Character Point Of View (POV)


Now that you know something about the personalities of your potential cast members, it is time to find out how they see your story.


In this step, you’ll have each character write another paragraph from their point of view, but this time describing the basic plot of your story as it appear to them.


This will make your story more realistic by helping you understand and describe how each character sees and feels about the events unfolding around them.  


Some characters may be integral to the plot.  Others may simply be interesting folk who populate your story’s world.  Be sure each character includes how they see their role (if any) in the events, or if they seem themselves as just an observer or bystander.  If they are involved in the plot, outline the nature of their participation as they see it.


Again, you don’t want to go into great detail at this time.  What you want is just an idea of how your story looks through each character’s eyes.  This will help you later on not only to decide which characters you want in your story, but how you might employ them as well.


In the next step we’ll get to know your characters even better by investigating any personal and/or moral issues with which they grapple.
