Mastering Multiple Points Of View @ The Beginning Writer

Today I’d like to talk about using multiple points of view. I really like multiple POV because the story is being told by several characters so you get to see different people’s interpretations of events, which provides more depth and insight than first-person POV can convey. But using multiple points of view can cause problems. They can easily get out of control and turn your story into a mess. That’s why it’s important to know how to give each character a voice without having them talk over one another.
