The house is quiet this morning. I don’t know why I got up so early. My husband left for work and the cat abandoned me to brave the wind outside. I can hear the big clock above my T.V ticking away and I know I should get off the couch and do something constructive. I got my new little Polish Pottery tea pot ready for tea with a friend this morning, but she had to cancel last minute, so here I sit. I at least hope to get back to my novel this morning.
I sent the first chapter to an editor last week. Keep in mind, I have never written fiction before. She sent it back to me with some assurance that I indeed had potential and to keep at the book. There were lots of little corrections to make and I had to change the way I look at some things. I never really understood the concept of Point of View from a writing perspective. But she helped me see how to go about writing from the character’s POV. I was amazed at how much difference it made in the manuscript.
Point of View is very important in our Christian walk as well. Instead of always seeing things through our eyes only, we should try to see the other person’s POV. Or better yet, God’s POV! I was stuck in the rut of writing though my perspective instead of my character’s. I don’t want to get stuck in real life, always judging by my perspective instead of seeing in the Spirit.
Oh, the selfish heart of the natural man. I think I will be more aware of my eyesight after learning this lesson in POV.
Any of you have that problem, or is it just me?!
