I have a question about writing, mainly the style.

Should I like in first person or thrid person head hopping or full scale third person?

and then should I write in traditional past tense or more new present tense?
MakingFunOfStuff Featured By Owner Sep 27, 2015
Hmm, that seems pretty subjective.
I'm sure there is unique advantage to be taken of each style. The best choice is the one which you feel you can make the best use of for your particular story. 

I hear head hopping is usually looked down on, but I personally like to use it for comic effect while focusing on the main character for the important parts of the story (so as not to make it feel awkward or cheap).

I always admired the style J. K. Rowling uses in Harry Potter, which I believe is called third person omniscient. 
It's like having a camera on the main character (including into their mind), so that we are duped into thinking their beliefs are always right when they aren't necessarily. This lends itself to good opportunities for narrative misdirection and plot twists. (Remember what we believed about Snape, Mad Eye, Scabbers).

It all depends what you're trying to accomplish, and like I said before, which style you can use to your advantage.

Thanks for asking me, by the way, and I hope that's helpful. I like talking about this stuff.

What are your thoughts on 'A Series of Unfortunate Events'? I really enjoy your work, and I want to know your thoughts on this series.
MakingFunOfStuff Featured By Owner Jul 10, 2015
Thanks for saying so!

I liked those books, they were really funny. It reminded me of a cartoon, sort of. What about you?

I really enjoyed them, and I started reading the prequel books, but only own the first two.

I need to finish reading the prequels. Those were good books. :XD:
