Great post on POV. Worth reading as the times I have refused to review a book I couldn't finish was because of poorly managed POV. The reader can't FEEL your characters without a decent perspective.
"Point of view isn’t merely another writing craft technique. Point of view is the foundation upon which great fiction rests."

Dawn Allen, Writing Instructor
Excellent resource, everyone needs to check out the link in this blog
"Today I’m pointing you toward a new website which I hope will help writers brainstorm stronger characters, craft deeper, more compelling plots, and teach us how to be more effective with our description so we draw readers in.
One Stop For Writers is a collaboration between Becca Puglisi and Angela Ackerman, authors of The Emotion Thesaurus, and Lee Powell, creator ofScrivener for Windows. "
Guest post by David Villvalva on the most important pinch point in your story - the climax
"The climax of your novel should leave readers with some combination of emotional and intellectual satisfaction, as well as any intended sense of unease – often creepy.  Or if it’s a part of a series, a compelling bridge into the next installment.  Either way, you want your final act to resonate, to be memorable."
