The Writing Loft The Narrator Who is narrating your story? The narrator is the character telling the story or assumed to be speaking in the novel. A narrator can be a voice outside the story. Your choice of narrator is crucial to the way your novel is perceived by the reader. Narrators may tell the story from one of several points-of-view.

The Writing Loft Point of View Decide the narrator’s point of view Point of view is the perspective of the narrator. The two most popular points of view are: Third-person/omniscient : A panoramic view of the story’s world, looking into many characters and a broader background. First-person : Greater focus on the feelings, opinions, and perceptions of a particular character/narrator. Words, once they are printed, have a life of their own. - Carol Burnett Point of View 1 Point of View 2
