My post today can be found at Magical Words, the group blog about the craft and business of writing that I maintain, under the name David B. Coe, with fellow authors Faith Hunter, Misty Massey, John Hartness, and Mindy Klasky, among others.  The post is called “On Writing: Knowledge Versus Wisdom” and it is about the truisms we encounter as writers and the ways in which they are both accurate and misleading.  I hope you enjoy the post.

Today’s post is up at Magical Words, the blog on the craft and business of writing that I maintain with Faith Hunter, Misty Massey, Mindy Klasky, John Hartness and several other wonderful writers. The post is called “On Writing: Creative Intersections–Point of View and Dialog”.  It’s a follow-up to a post I wrote a few weeks ago about the ways in which staying true to Point of View can help us address so many of the problems that come up when we write.  As the title implies, this time around I am looking at ways in which POV can strengthen our use of dialog in stories and books.  I hope you enjoy it.

I’m back at Magical Words today with the latest Blog Tour installment.  This one is a post about using Point of View to solve problems that crop up with our writing.  The post can be found here.

“…Point of view is the nexus of character and narrative; it is the place where our character arcs and our story arcs come together.  It is how we inject emotion and meaning into our plot points.  But what struck me so forcefully at this summer’s conventions and writing workshop, is that POV is also the answer to so many problems that we run into as writers when working on a novel.”
