Point of View

One of the most important things we have to decide when writing is the point-of-view (POV). The most important thing to consider when deciding the POV is deciding your main character and if secondary characters also want to show their point-of-view. This is especially true in romance, many of the stories are written from the viewpoint of the two main love interests usually in third person. Although I have read a few that are in the first person. Just remember to stay consistent throughout the book. (But even then there are exceptions to the rule such as American Psycho by Brett Easton Ellis, which starts in first person and ends in third).

First person POV is limited to what the main character can see and feel. This is especially great for emotional connection to a character and individual character growth. The third person POV can be more flexible and doesn’t depend on staying on one character throughout the entire book. For third person try to keep a limit on the number of POVs in one scene because the reader can become confused on who is thinking and doing what in the scene if the POV keeps changing too much.

The character’s POV also has to do with your character’s reveal. The POV can explain characters personality traits such as confidence levels and what is important. Do you want the reader to know everything up front or do you want your reader to slowly learn about your character in phases as the story progresses? I have mixed feelings on this. Honestly, it has to do with the writer.

In my experience, I find I get bored when information is poured into me in the beginning of the story. I just want the story to get started. But remember readers are all different and some prefer the details of the characters and plot placed for them in the beginning. If you can keep your reader interested while you spill out all your character’s information, I say more power to you. Remember this also has to do with your character. If they are the type to lay it all out on the line then do a reveal in the beginning. If they are more the type to get the action started and explain later than start with action.

Remember this is your character’s story and they have a way of telling you how they want their story told. So choose a POV and keep writing.

Description: Luke ignored his Irish roommates when they advised him to return the coin he found. They warned him about keeping leprechaun gold. He might regret it when a sexy, kilt-wearing leprechaun shows up to claim the last of his gold.

Luke, an American exchange student studying abroad in Ireland, ignored his roommates when they told him to put back the gold coin he found in the garden. They warned him about what would happen if he kept the leprechaun gold. He might wonder if maybe he should have listened to them when a sexy, kilt-wearing leprechaun shows up that night to claim the last of the coins from his scattered pot of gold.

Review: Arn is in search of his lost treasure and the last piece falls into the hands of a college student named Luke. Arn can't take the treasure Luke has claimed so Arn must fulfill Luke's wish to make love. Luke is an American college student finishing school in Ireland. Luke finds himself attracted to one of his roommates mostly because of the sexy Irish accent. Luke's heart is quickly changed after a night with the Leprechaun Arn.

Cailtin Ricci gives us a quick and cute read that is perfect for the St. Patrick's day spirit. The story is fast and the love even quicker as we are taken to a world of magic and one hopeful college student.

I recommend this story to anyone who loves a quick love story in the hopes of waiting to find true love.

Scream of a Banshee

 

154112937-Woman-in-red-bansheeTonights Saturday Night Creature Feature is an Irish folklore of the Banshee in celebration ofSt. Patrick’s day! She is a messenger of death and usually died so brutally that her spirit stays to wander the earth warning others when a violent death is upon them.

She is usually depicted as a woman with long fingernails and sharp teeth. She has been seen as both old and young. Her mouth is usually open in a painful and loud scream that tortures the spirit of those still living. Looking into her bloodshot eyes also meant an instant death. To see her foretells a imminent death in the family she is haunting. She usually wears a cloak of white, red, or black, her hair long and pale usually hiding her face.

Banshees are also known to wander through the woods wailing in the dead of night causing fear in those who hear them. Her scream causes no harm but can be painful and heartbreaking to hear. It is also legend that if a person can hear the wail constantly the person may go insane.

Powers: She is considered a spirit or ghost in most mythology and doesn’t bring harm to anyone. People confuse the banshee believing she brings death but she only gives a warning of death. Once the family member has passed she is the souls guide to help them pass safely into the afterlife. She is mostly known for her scream and wails of pain.

Weakness: No weaknesses known. She is a messenger of death and unfortunately unless you are immortal this will happen to all of us.
