Third-person close. Done right, it has the power to be right there beside your character. But straying from third-person close can put distance between your reader and the story, making events feel irrelevant and characters two-dimensional. If you want your readers to feel like they are passengers in your protagonist’s head, feeling what they feel, hearing what they hear, experiencing everything down to the last gritty detail, a strong, tight third-person narration is key.

“Tighten up your POV,” your editor says. But how do you do this? In this class, I’ll walk you through how to recognize distanced POV and how to “tighten” the lens. We’ll dig deep into the individual word choices that can make or break your third-person close, as well as some phrases to look out for.

Topics will include…
  • Barrier words (words that create a barrier between your reader and the story)
  • Making the POV experience unique
  • Using description to make your POV character “real”
  • And more!
