So, I’ve been noticing that our ask box is full of questions about POV problems: What point of view should I use? I want to use first, but there’s a scene where my MC isn’t there. Should I use third and first? What about writing Multi-POVs? And what’s the difference between Third Person Limited and Third Person Omniscient, anyway? How do I write in Multi-POV?
Don’t get me wrong; I have no problems answering these questions. Actually, I’m happy you asked! POVs are something I can at least help with. I just am surprised at the vast ocean we got.
But fear not! I’m going to attempt to answer these questions by explaining what a Point of View is, the different kinds of POVs that you can use [with examples], and hopefully help you on your way to picking a damn pronoun.
Oh, really? I’m sorry if it offended you! It’s probably because I’m coming from an American background that I wasn’t able to spot the inaccuracies in that post. I’ll take it down immediately!
Again I’m using this gif…
But if you wouldn’t mind or have the time, would you be willing to do a correction post of the original one? Where you point out the inaccuracies and supply the correct terms? I know that a lot of writers on Luna write for fandoms such as Doctor Who, Sherlock, and even Harry Potter where British slang and jargon could be helpful for writing!
If not, that’s completely fine~ But thank you for taking the trouble to point it out in the first place!
- Is a form of asphyxia due to aspiration of fluid into the air passage, due to submersion in fluid or water.
- Complete submersion is not necessary, that of mouth and nose alone for a sufficient period can cause death from drowning.Bodies recovered from water may have:
- died of natural causes before entering the water; while in the water
- died from exposure and hypothermia in the water;
- died of injuries or other unnatural cause before entering the water; after entering the water;
- died from submersion, but not drowning; or
- died from true drowning as a result of aspiration of water into the lungs.
“Hopefully, these tips will get you writing a little more per day — even carving out an additional 500 words in a day is a good start. Again, that’s not to say this is for everyone: but sometimes deadlines or aspirations demand you hit the accelerator. And these tips may help you do it.”
anon asked: How do you write for a drunk person realistically when you have never been drunk yourself?
How do you write a death scene if you’ve never died? You pretend, imagine, and do your research.
But, since you asked about drunkenness specifically, we’ll tackle…
