Deep point of view is a powerhouse in the author’s arsenal. It allows them to get readers to understand, forgive, and empathize with a character’s bad behavior. It allows an author to create odd characters who behave strangely but who still make sense to readers. But it requires digging below the surface and involves thinking about all the things that you wrote about the character in your novel’s planning binder, and then thinking how would a character who has had all those experiences, who suffers all those hangups, who has all those strengths, who has that set of beliefs behave in this situation. The key is going from understanding what they would do and why they would do it to showing the motivation on the written page by weaving the specific motivating thoughts and feelings into the fabric of the scene. These are the aspects of deep point of view we will be exploring in class and practicing in class.
