The power point-of-view can bring to your writing

December 04, 2017 | Writing


Mur Lafferty, producer and host of the I Should Be Writing podcast, which she bills as the podcast for wannabe fiction writers, is also filled with tips and techniques applicable to business and non-fiction writing of all stripes. (My words, not Mur’s.) Lafferty’s program is winner of the Podcast Peer Award and the Parsec Award, and has more than 8,000 subscribers. You can subscribe to I Should Be Writing on iTunes.

In this episode she discusses the power of point-of-view and how it makes readers sympathize with characters, as well as defining the role of the protagonist and antagonist. It only takes a little imagination to see how point-of-view, as Mur Lafferty describes it, applies to business writing. It has to do with understanding your audience and delivering content tailored for and empathetic to their predispositions. After explaining point-of-view and how to successfully deploy the technique, Lafferty interviews author Beth Cato.
