So, I'm reading Wizard of Earthsea, which is third person omniscient . Leguin does change perspective a few times in the chapter, but does so skillfully. The changes in character are accompanied by good narrative transitions
A better example might be "A wrinkle in Time." This is limited third from Meg's persective

This thread helps me clarify some things so much! Thank you.

I'm Kim.
4) I tend to jump in with both feet without waiting for instructions and am the queen of ongoing projects, which this year includes a goat farm and a summer literacy program for neighborhood children.
1) I write YA, fantasy, sci-fi, religious, and very poor poetry.
2) I started a blog a couple years ago, though I have a rather embarrassing half finished manuscript lying around that is going on ten years old. I plan to disown it once it hits puberty.
3) Favorite authors: CS LEWIS, Tolkien, Neil Gaiman, JK Rowling,

I love to read sci-fi, some fantasy, and some YA
