Close Narration: Give your reader ‘the feels’. 

Make your readers live the story and connect to your characters by improving how you present your characters’ thoughts and emotions, and how to make inner monologues more convincing,

This is where we take a closer look at the following:

  • 1st person narration and Stream of Consciousness;
  • Point of View and Free Indirect Speech (3rd person limited)
