I usually play editor for a friend of mine. The current thing he is having me read is a piece he says is supposed to be in a Third-Person Omniscient POV. I’m so used to reading and writing in Third-Person Limited, so what I keep reading feels more like head hopping to me. Reading through this, I am just about ready to try to ignore all instances of it and keep it moving, but I want to be able to understand what I’m reading, too.
Is there someone here who either has a good grasp of the Third-Person Omniscient POV that can try to explain it to me, or links to places I can explore that might help me understand it better?
