    Agents, editors, and professors of creative writing make a big deal about point of view (POV). As well, different POVs sound and feel different to the reader, POV comes in different flavors: first person, second person, third person limited, omniscient, objective; and different cases: past and present; and different depths. Furthermore, you can use different POVs in different sections of a story to achieve different effects. Deft management of POV in your stories will make your writing more professional and more appealing to readers.
