Quick Reminder – Point of View

POV = Point of View

space

When you’re in a character’s POV, you know not only what he is saying but also what he is thinking, feeling, planning, etc. If you are not in that character’s POV, you can only know what he outwardly expresses, either verbally, by action, or by nonverbal communication.

space

You can have others comment on things that have happened to a non-POV character, or speculate on why he behaves a certain way, but you can’t have him remember, think, feel, or speculate without being in his point of view.
