First come the results of last week’s poll—Where Are You In Your Writer’s Journey? 

Point of View In Writing

Most-voted-for saw a four-way tie

* Wondering If I Can Be A Writer; Still Thinking About What To Write; Doing Research; and, Writing A First Draft.

There was a three-way tie for the next-most-voted-for:

* Doing Revisions; Working On The Tasks of Self-Publishing; and, Promoting A Book.

Then came “Other”:

* “trying to write with an authentic voice”

And, there was one Comment:

* “I think many writers, no matter where they are on their writer’s journey, find themselves at some stage, staring at the wall/ceiling/keyboard/the cat/cup of sustaining beverage and wondering if they can be a writer… even Shakespeare…”

~~~~~~~~~

Now, for this week’s topic—Point of View (or, POV).

There are separate polls for Reading and Writing—and, some of you will vote in both

I’m only supplying the most common points-of-view:

First Person: “I couldn’t believe what I saw.”

Second Person: “You won’t believe what you see.”

Third Person: “Seeing the miracle didn’t make him believe it.”

If you want a quick primer of the common points-of-view, try Grammar Girl’s

If these polls spark your interest in knowing about other POVs, try this article by Kelly Leiter

For those of you who are aware of or use other points-of-view, there is the “Other” Space

And, multiple votes are permissible :-)

Friday Poll ~ Where Are You In Your Writer’s Journey?


As always, before the new poll, we’ll look at last week’s results from How Do You Find The Books You Read? 

First place went to “A Friend’s Recommendation”.

Second place had “A Review I Read”.

Third was a two-way tie with “In A Book Shop by Browsing” & “At An Internet Retailer by Browsing”.

Fourth place also had a two way tie: “In A Friend’s Library” & “At An Internet Retailer from ‘Also Bought’ Recommendation”.

Fifth place had “In the Public Library by Browsing”.

Sixth was “Noticing It In A Shop Window”.

Seventh place was a two-way tie with “In the Public Library from An Employee Recommendation” & the “Other” Space which had someone write in “Author’s Blog, Online Postings by Other Readers”.

Last were two which got no votes: “The Star-Rating” & “In A Bookshop from An Employee Recommendation”.

~~~~~~~~~

Now this week’s poll.

Again, you can make multiple votes and the “Other” space is there for unique answers

Reading, Writing, Publishing ~ What Are You Interested In?


I’ve been blogging for 3½ years about Reading, Writing, and Publishing.

~~~

Because bloggers can’t always count on enough comments to make decisions about what their readers want, we often have polls and surveys—hoping to entice folks to provide feedback.

~~~

And, because yesterday’s experimental post didn’t draw as many comments as I’d hoped, I’m including a very short and easy survey today.

~~~

It’s only up for a week so jump right in;
and, be sure to tell your friends about it.

Multiple Answers Are Welcomed :-)
