If you are doing omniscient, how do you do dialogue without head hopping? How do you make normal fiction writing dialogue work in omniscient? What a struggle. Because you can't head hop, you either have to integrate the thoughts into dialogue, or put it in your narrative as no-voice head hopping.
I've talked about commentary, head hopping, point of view, dialogue, and who's story it's about. In this article, I'm going to talk about why I might put something in double quotes or single quotes.
I found myself wondering whose story I had just written when I finished writing my omniscient story. On top of that, some of the main characters disappeared from the story so that meant more screen time for others. But then...whose story was this in the end? Let me reflect.
Omniscient point of view and multiple point of view? Where does third person come in? Let's try to understand what the heck is going on here. I think the issue is that people need to distinguish between POV and narrative.
Omniscient style is head-hopping allowed, right??? Wrong. "You CANNOT HEAD HOP!" People said. But then they also say it is okay to hop between heads of characters. But isn't that head hopping? How can it be okay and not okay?
