I have learned how to write deep p.o.v. fairly well. However, writing every single scene/page using this point of view seems very limiting. Some times it seems to me that summarizing and describing would move the story along more quickly. Is it totally forbidden to combine deep point of view with a limited amount of third person description?
Hi Ruchama, You can combine deep point of view with a limited amount of third person description, as long as it works for the story and stays in the character’s perspective. At least that’s my perspective. What works really depends on your genre and above all, what your story needs to be well told. Hope that helps.
