Of POV and nightmares

POV is what my latest nightmares have conjured to keep things interesting. I realized a couple of days ago that I desperately needed a refresher course on POV (okay, more like a bucket of ice cold water!) so I've been reading different books from different authors to see what they're doing and take note.

Ironically, I have found it a challenge to take a step back from the stories and focus on the techniques. I tend to disappear into whichever world the author has created and forget about the learning opportunities that present themselves. Needless to say, it is proving to be an enriching experience that I am positive will reflect in my writing.
