"Objective Narrative vs Subjective Narrative Whether you’re writing from a third person viewpoint or a first person viewpoint, you always need to decide whether you want your narrative to be subjective or objective. It’s always hard not to get subjective when writing a story; however, if you start to write from an objective point of view it should remain like that for the whole story. Objective Narrative: The narrator is an observer, a “fly on the wall,” but cannot enter into the minds of the other characters except in a speculative way. Such a narrator is trapped by the chronology and immediacy of the story, like a reporter “on the scene” of an event transpiring. Subjective Narrative: A narrator of a subjective point of view (also known as “limited omniscience”) knows everything about a single character only, and sees the story through the eyes of that character. (x) Subjective Narrative taken to an extreme, where the narrator knows everything about every single character, is narrated by a fully omniscient narrator."
