Hi, This is driving me crazy, so any help and thoughts would be appreciated. I'm writing my story in third-person. I guess it would be called deep-pov. Basically I'm trying to convey the story as if the Character IS the Narrator. So everything is experienced as if through the character. So my question is: Where is the author's voice in all this? Mine. If I truly commit to this extremely close 3rd person pov--and was completely successful with it--would there ideally be NO authorial voice? Or maybe they one and the same? Taking this logic further, if I wrote another book with the same narration style but wildly different characters, would this new book completely feel like a different author wrote it? I'm asking because I have a few things as an author I want to convey through my voice--some fun quips and whatnot--but I feel I can't squeeze them in when committing absolutely to this narration style. I feel like I'm gaining a very experiential storytelling style but losing anything that could be achieved with authorial voice. And basically want to get the best of both worlds, if possible. Thanks again.
