    switching between third person limited and subjective

    Discussion in 'General Writing' started by stuff, Jul 25, 2011.

    After writing about 125 pages and brushing back through with editing work between spurts of adding new scenes, I've noticed that I switch between what I believe is: third person limited, third person subjective, and perhaps even bits of deep POV.

    However, there is no intended character-hopping as far as I can tell.

    I couldn't imagine writing an entire novel in deep POV, but I like intimacy that it creates between the reader and my main character.

    Is switching wrong? Not recommended?

    or,

    It is good to switch it up a bit? to add interest?

    I think it may be best to stick to one style of narration.

    But, who knows you may be on to something very innovative.

    I noticed that I sneak in character's internal feelings when I try to portray a third person narrator. Gonna have to work on that.
