Interesting article! :) Now I know all there is to know about third person, Omniscient Point of View and “cinematic” third person. (And yes, I did read all three articles). ;)

Thanks, Rkcapps! :)

yes, I read them all too,but I think I prefer my own version/s - because it's easier for me to understand! Does that say something about being an alone writer ... opinionated ... ummmm ... too much time to ... too much ego to simply trust the way it was always done ... okay, enough rambling. POV was probably the toughest thing for me to try to master, and I'm not sure if I every will, not completely. I might have to rely on my buddy writers to let me know when I slip in and out of the right heads ... was that a manic laugh off in the distance ... better check ...

I read all 3 too, that's why I felt it was my best find.

Another point of view on point of view, with consideration of how it may impact chances for traditional publishing.

I prefer the up-close-and-personal third person (reading and writing), with the occasional camera angle thrown in, but only if it's seeing the world from the shoulder of the POV char. (there's another 'but' :oops: in this comment - how to get rid of every one? Implausible!)
