All about POV snobbery by Mae Clair on Story Empre today.
Happy January, SEers! Mae here, with my first post of the New Year, and I’m glad to have you with me. To kick off 2019, I’d like to pose a question.
Are you a POV Snob?
I was (please note the past tense before you round up pitchforks and torches).
Shameful, I know. It’s hard to admit, but there was a time I steered clear of anything written in first person POV or present tense. And God forbid an author wrote in first person and present. Horrors!
Back in the day before ebooks, I loved visiting my local brick-and-mortar bookstore. First, I’d seek out the section for my preferred genre, then look for anything new from my favorite authors. After that, I browsed by book cover and title. I’m one of those readers who does judge a book by its cover, which is why first impressions are important.
