Hey everyone.

So I've just started to write down my ideas for my latest piece. And I'm slightly stuck with a switching pov problem. To switch or not too switch?

I have read before that there are no set rules only guidelines with writing etc, but some advice from some absolute writers would be handy.

Its probably easier if I just show it in examples.

ok here goes.


Did you ever meet Jimmy hendrix? I'm guessing your answer is no. Well I did. I actually had a guitar battle with him. How? Well it's probably easier if I start from the beginning.

1. Switch to third

There sat young James Elveran, watching in awe as....etc

2. Stay in first.


There I was, watching in awe as...etc

(This is not my real piece)

Now over to you, What do you prefer?
