I have a scene that I have been working on and I tend to bounce around on voice. I can't decide which direction to go...I like both for various reasons.

Would posting the scene and having people take a look be on-topic?

Critique questions are on topic here, but as per our critique guidelines you'd need to ask specific questions to avoid it being closed.

In this case, perhaps asking if character voice has achieved such-and-such a tone would work, or anything else along those lines.

  • So would something along the lines of "In this excerpt I have utilized both 1st and 3rd person voice for the same character. Please evaluate the effectiveness of both voices, which better brings the character to life?" Something like that?
