All right guys, today we’re going to be talking about verb tenses. The passage I’m using today is from Chapter 20 of the Quizilla story “The Devil Wears Playboy Boxers” (Spelling errors have been fixed in red)
Amy started playing with her cell, waiting for me to finish. “She said it was true. She was about to say the girl’s name, when he interrupted her. Then he got all mad and started going about how he didn’t care if anyone believed him or not. I thought that was weird because. . . it’s Forrest. And he got all defensive about it.”
the appearance of objects, buildings, etc, relative to each other, as determined by their distance from the viewer, or the effects of this distance on their appearance
In the writing world, perspective is simply the point of view from which the story is told. Commonly on the web, it’s shortened to “POV” for point of view.
Today I’m going to be talking about different points of view and how which one you pick affects the way your story is read.
Welcome! If you’ve come to this site, you’ve probably also visited a lot of other teen writing sites online. Quizilla, perhaps, or Mibba or Wattpad. The problem with these sites is that they’re main focus is getting work out there, not teaching people how to be better writers. That’s what this site is for.
At TeenWritingCentral, I’ll be posting small excerpts of certain works I’ve read online and all of us can dissect it together, discussing which parts of it work, which could be improved, and which are perfectly fine but could also be done a different way. The best way for this site to operate is for people to comment with their own opinions, so make sure to leave feedback! Don’t be the person who takes without giving back. I’ve set it up so you don’t need to log in or give your email address in order to comment, so don’t be shy! Just make a fake username for yourself and speak up! We’d all love to hear your thoughts.
And who am I, you ask? Well, my name is worldclass. I’m an online author like you guys, found on quizilla, mibba and wattpad under the same username. Look me up!
Now, shall we begin? I think it’s time we all started to work together to become better writers…
