Heads Will Roll

I’m still pecking away at the self-editing guide, currently stalled on how to address point-of-view management.

My hate for head-hopping is strong. I still think authors who mix first and third just for the sake of doing it are taking an unnecessary risk.

Now tell me, how am I supposed to keep the subjective out of it?
