November 19 Meeting: Barbara Longley, Minnesota author and member of Romance Writers of America Hall of Fame. Join award winner and Amazon International bestseller in her presentation.
DEEP POINT OF VIEW:
You ask: What exactly is deep point of view, and why do I want to include it in my writing? Ms. Longley will lead writers through DPOV as it pertains to the following elements of storytelling:

* Character driven vs. plot driven
* Back story & intimacy
* Filter/buffer words
* Overuse of "to be" verbs
* Descriptive narrative & pacing
