How can I master deep POV? - Do you have any tips for me?
« on: March 24, 2018, 04:16:23 AM »
It does not matter if you read “Hunger Games” or any other YA books. Many of them are written in deep POV. Either first person or third person.
But who can hold the authors against it? I mean it’s a great technique to create suspense. The characters haven’t an omniscient view.
Instead of “I see…, I taste…, I smell…, I hear…, I feel…” they write it differently. Maybe instead of “I see a wheat-gold liquid.” They write “A wheat-gold liquid fills the glass.”
Although I know it’s a difficult way to write. I wanna try it.
So, do you have any tips for me to master it?

first let me just say in advance that i like your passion to write.
second, what i'll write next is not advice to you, but several  suggestions.
i didn't read Hunger Games script, so i won't comnent on that regard
but about your intention to write it a as first person POV.

I think you mean and confuse the directive style the move was made to look and not the actual writing.
i don't know if any script ever did this and turn into a movie- maybe self produced.

if you want or need for taste to be "seen"  just use dialogue or reaction.

example:
he consumes the chicken wing in a instant - means it was tasty.

example2: he bit off a chicken wing, toss it back to the plate./
abandons the fork to drink wine.- not taste good

do the same with sounds, feeling etc- those things can only grasped by reaction.
Actors react/say what bother them in their surrondings.

567.

Your lack of capital letters is pathetic. Your writing is so full of mistakes, it’s embarrassing.

Are you six?

Thanks for noticing. Written in android app. It doesn't support auto-capitalization.
And yes i write with mistakes.
