Earlier this month on the way into our cabin I took this photo:
On the way out a week later I took this one:
Same horse, same general location, but the weather had changed. Who would have thought a few snowflakes could alter the mood of a scene so drastically?
The same thing happens with point of view in our novel writing. There is a subtle change — or maybe it’s not so subtle — when a scene is viewed through different eyes or in different conditions. If you have a ho-hum scene, consider changing the perspective and see if that brings the scene to life.
Do you have an essential scene in your writing (or perhaps in a photograph) that lacks punch? What might you do to make a difference?
(A click or two will enlarge any photo for a closer look)

The snow makes the horse and the landscape seem magical. I love the differences between these two photos. Thanks so much for more of your great photography, Carol 🙂
I always enjoy what you share here; it gets me thinking.
Great advice re trying a different perspective. Thanks! Love the snowy pic. 🙂
Excellent suggestion, and so helpful. I’m struggling right now over a scene that’s about to take place overseas. Maybe I should try another POV. Thanks, Carol!
Love the pictures!
