This year for the A-Z Challenge, I'm attempting to act like I know what I'm talking about and offering advice about writing. Let's see how I do!
Also, don't forget to stop by the Parallels blog to see more posts about the upcoming anthology, which will be available on May 3rd!
As you consider perspective, consider the tone you want to establish. The POV character or characters you choose and the POV you use all determine which thoughts you’re privy to and how those establish the tone of the story. When you inhabit the mind of the hero, you see their motivations. You see the people they want to save and why. You might see how their personal losses have made them who they are. When you inhabit the mind of the villain, you get a front row seat to their dark thoughts. You may learn whether a personal loss drives them or if they were born with these dark impulses.
