. I'm trying not to get hung up on point of view, particularly the apparent anathema of changing POV mid-sentence/paragraph, use section break, new chapter, keep it the same... a. As Ken walked into the bar, the convivial hubbub faded away. Typical insolent locals, he thought. But as their new vet, he'd need them on side as soon as possible. Vs. b. Ken looked up at his secretary. Thirty years old, unmarried, and not averse to giving him the come-on. One day he'd accept. 'In the bottom drawer Sandra, please.' As she bent over, she felt his eyes caressing her. One day, she thought. One day. If (b.) doesn't work, why doesn't it? Just reading a Clive Cussler - POV all over the place, often mid-para., but it's easy to follow.
