Brielle that is a great article. I have that one in my resource bookmarks.

I write in a close proximity of Deep POV, third person. (I hate first person). Third person deep POV feels like first without the annoying self-centeredness of I, I, I…. I really like how it gets you inside the head of your characters. You can hear their thoughts and get their first account of the situation/events. But every once in a while, I find that I need to pull the camera back a little bit because it can be too oppressive and feel a little too heavy handed. I usually come out of it for intense action scenes, throw in a bit of thought to give the emotional impact and then go back to the third person limited which has more filters in it until the action is done. After that, we’re right back inside the character’s head.
