 Day 3: The PoV and Style of Writing.

The story will be written in third person with the PoV occasionally changing between the main squad with the rare switch to the antagonist's side for the sake of suspense but also for clarification. Initially I started writing the story in present tense, but now I'm starting to question myself and that decision -- maybe I should switch to past tense after all. But the scene I have been working on is more powerful in present tense, imo, but I can't justify the whole story just because of that one scene...

"Show, don't tell" rule can be very exhausting, though, and to be honest I'm never sure how well I ever apply that into my writing. If it comes, it comes, but I'm not trying to force it, since that would only make the text tedious to both write and read. 

I try to keep the style consistent and limited to the restricted third person narrator that is only omniscient regarding the characters whose pov the scene is from. It leans probably towards omniscient as a whole, though, since I will play around with PoV's a bit.
