Tips For Quick Paced Perspectives

  • Jump from head to head and only show the critical moments

  • Be tight with your prose

  • Make sure that something important is happening in every scene

  • Every scene, regardless of POV, has something that is moving the story and plot forward

  • Get into the scene late, get out of the story early
