Hi! So, I’m writing a story told in third person omniscient, but I’m having a difficult time writing it properly. I gave it to my editor and she said that I’m not writing it in third person omniscient. But before I hired her, I gave it to my creative English teacher to get some suggestions. She told me to do the opposite of what my editor said to fix. So, I’ll just lay it out here with an example of what my editor and teacher commented on. Character A is a male with black hair. Character B is a male with blonde hair. These two characters don’t know each other and they walk pass each other. But I do know them by their names cause I’m the narrator and author. Also, let’s say that I’m currently following Character A’s POV. SO… According to my creative English teacher, it should be written as such: Character A walks pass a man with blonde hair. She said that since I’m writing from the POV of Character A, I shouldn’t write Character B’s name because A doesn't know him. BUT, according to my editor, it should be written as such: Character A walks pass Character B. She said that it doesn’t matter that Character A and B don’t know each other and that I’m following Character A’s perceptive because I’m writing it in third person omniscient. I have a god-like power. I’m should be writing their thoughts and emotions through my words and not theirs. I originally had like the editor’s suggestion, but after I gave it my teacher, I changed it. Then after I gave it to my editor and I changed again. So, which one is correct? ALSO, would the answer change if Characters A and B are in different scenes? So, essentially these two characters are not sharing the same scene. So, I have a scene where one character identifies another character by scent, but he doesn’t know him by his name and he hasn’t even met him. This character has a large smell radius so he can smell that character who’s far away and not in the scene. So, this would be the two versions while still using Character A (who smells the scent) and B (who is being smelled) and in the POV of Character A: Character A smells the scent of a male. (Because hormones are also detected by Character A). OR Character A smells the scent of Character B. Which is correct according to this scenario? Or is the same as the pervious example?
