Head Hopping: Should You Do It?

A Writer's Path

by Sara Butler Zalesky 

While I was working with an editor onWheeler, the phrase ‘head hopping’ kept coming up again and again, but I had no idea to what she was referring. Being new to this thing called writing, my only experience was what I read from other authors. I’m a prolific reader, from sci/fi, fantasy, romance, YA, thrillers, anything I could get my hands on, I read. I hadn’t noticed the difference between hearing the inner thoughts of the characters, I was either fully engrossed or I couldn’t get past the first chapter.

    Stephanie Laurens does a lot of headhopping. I go back and forth in whether I think it’s a good thing. I know too much is bad. But sometimes it enhances the scene.

      As usual, I’m sitting over here dazed and confused because I don’t consider her first example to be head hopping…and I know head hopping…being a repeat offender and all. 😧😄😏
