Hi, I'm curious what attracted you to writing in 3rd person objective. Why did you choose it? What do you find most challenging about this POV? Do you use it often or for only some of your works? Have you been influenced by television and movies more so than other writers? I have no concrete explanation for why I chose this POV for my first novel. But I did. I'm nearly 100 pages into my second draft and I have not found and "POV Leaks", you know, slipping into omniscient and back. BTW, I only learned of the name of this POV about halfway through my WIP. I also learned that Ernest Hemingway used this style frequently. I have three explanations why I picked it as my preferred POV. I do not enjoy human drama. I avoid it when I can. At work and home over the decades, I like you, have had to deal with it. Third-person objective is nice because I don't need to describe what a person is thinking or feeling. I can quietly observe and stay outside of all this human conflict. When my wife and I are out and about, I like to watch and listen to people, inferring what they are thinking, sort of a game. I grew up on lots of TV and movies. When I should have been reading, I was watching the boob tube (unrelated to clothing).
