Remember that one week where every Rooster Teeth and Achievement Hunter video involved bananas. Like every single video had at least one person eating a banana. There was the Let’s Play where Gavin was a banana. They wore banana-themed shirts, they ate bananas on the various podcasts, at staff meetings. An animated Joel ate a banana in RTAA. And everyone was getting kind of suspicious because an entire company seemed to have suddenly become banana-crazed.

And then this happened

she was made up of shades of gray. a rainbow all in itself. as for when i looked at her, that was only color i could see. it was not a sad color, but it was not a happy one. a perfect mixture of white and black. a broken, hurt little soul healed by the little things life offered. a soul fixed by the love that revived her. but a love that broke her time and time again. i never did have the pleasure of calling that girl mine, but damn i wish i did.

Cors y Gedol Burial Chamber, North Wales, 12.4.17.

Last time I visited this site was in the last day of 2016. Very different weather this time! One of my favourite prehistoric burial chambers with a notable capstone. It is roughly 84ft in length and likely built in the Neolithic.

Writing an immersive third person limited point of view.

What is third person? In third person pov the narrator refers to all character by third-person pronouns, such as he, she, or they. In contrast, first person pov uses the first person pronouns, I and me, for the narrator.

What is third person limited? Third person limited is the alternate to third person omniscient. In third person limited, you have one single pov character narrating the story at any given moment (though you can have as many of these limited pov characters as you want throughout the course of the story), whereas in third person omniscient, there is an omniscient (all knowing) narrator.

Why choose a limited third person pov? 

- The reader forms a stronger, more personal connection to your pov character(s).
- You can easily build suspense because the reader never knows for certain what the non-pov characters are thinking, feeling, or planning.
- You can more easily write an unreliable narrator because your narrator tells things only as they see them, and not as they truly are.

At the end of the day, there is nothing you can’t do with limited if you’re creative and willing to think outside the box. 

So you want to write a good limited third person pov then?

Keep in mind that most of these tips also translate to first person pov. In many ways, third person limited is very similar to first person, because you have a single narrator at any given time, and the reader is confined to that narrator’s interpretation of the world.

Here are some key things you need to remember while writing limited third person:
