Allow your POV characters to rant.  Spill your creative juices.  Splatter them across the page and let them drip with passion. What do they hate most about themselves or about their circumstances? Keep a rant concise, but a bit edgy gives your writing variety.

I held a brunch combined with a Point of View workshop at our home for persons interested in writing romance,  fiction's top selling genre.  Step One is grasping point of view.  Third person, first person, multiple viewpoints, single "bird's eye"-- what works?  We looked at ways to increase emotion for the reader.  For this workshop I wrote HOW TO WRITE POINT OF VIEW.  Six persons decided to write a novella for an anthology.  I created a fictional town, Moonlight Cove, where everyone's story will take place.  The name of our anthology will be Secrets of Moonlight Cove.  The book I am contributing is A Secret and a Thousand Wishes.  

Workshops -- sharing what I've learned

Second to writing a good story, mastering point of view (POV) is a challenge for most writers.  You may already know editors for romance prefer manuscripts written in past tense with two points of view in third person-- one from the heroine and and the other from the hero.  For romantic suspense, the villain's point of view is required.  Although some successful romance writers use bird's eye and first person, those POV styles typically belong to other genres. 

For each character, put a "video camera" on your head.  My simple method works.  Readers want to experience action and thoughts from your characters rather than you, the narrator.  Where does she want to go?
