Following my blog piece about Point of View on 19th January  a number of people had questions about head hopping and choosing point of view.

It seemed like another blog post was definitely needed.

Mabel wanted to know,

Is it OK to have MC point of view told in the third person?

The answer to that Mabel is a definite, “Yes”. Choosing which point of view to tell your character’s story from is entirely up to you.

This is the last day of my Tuesday Writing Tips Blog Tour, so Mabel if you join us at the blog of Author and illustrator, Angela Sunde, you’ll find out a whole lot more about point of view.

Angela writes kid’s books and is also an extremely talented illustrator. I couldn’t resist showing you her wonderful illustration of Chee Chee the chook. Here it is.

Angela came third in illustrated picture book and the graphic novel category in the 2009 CYA competition for her gorgeous pics of Chee Chee and Mia.

Tuesday Writing Tips continues as normal next week at this blog where  we’ll be discussing Good Writing Habits. Hope you can join us then.

In the meantime, if you’ve missed any of the Tuesday Writing Tips Blog Tour, here’s where we’ve been:
