That’s right, so let’s get up and dive in!
(The inspiration is more for me than anyone else, yikes.)
Over on my blog jessicaedouard.com, the one covered in cobwebs and filled with chirping crickets, because I’m a happenstance, infrequent visitor to a blog plastered with my name.

I asked a question I’m curious to bandy about. A POV (point of view) preference for those who might read historical romance, or whichever genre you enjoy most.
- Do you have a preference in how the story is told?
- Would perspective keep you from reading the book?
I know for the longest time I despised reading the first person narrative. I only devoured 3rd person. In romance, contemporary is often written in the first person, historical in the third. I read and write historical romance and found myself turning my nose at the rest. Until I realized as a writer, I could only benefit from indulging in everything, all fiction, all genres, all points of view. Painful, then strangely gratifying and intriguing me more and more as time elapsed. Even curious if I might be able to write in a different voice.
Do we have to draw lines?
The debate is interesting because there is always a need for conflict, right? Otherwise, I’d be spending some serious one-on-one time with a few of the 8 million characters, plots & twists trolling through my head.
- As a writer do you dabble in a little of each?
- Or…do you remain steadfast in one?
- Do you allow your muse to pick?
- Does genre play a difference?
- Am I beating around the bush right now?
- Can we indulge and write in all perspectives?
- Or…is there a secret code agents and/or publishers demand?
For the time, until you fill me with your wisdom, I will take the advice of a great friend over @LaPetitMuse, & keep doing me.
Write On! ❤ Jess
