You will notice three distinct points of view when it comes to the omniscient section. They are presented as the third person limited or subjective, the multiple third people limited, as well as the third person omniscient points of view. The third person omniscient point of view takes on an all-seeing type of perspective. It takes into account all angles of observation in the story, with none of the limitations of the other points of view. There are several advantages to using this type of view in your story.
It is the most traditional style of writing. If you look at most of the stories you ever heard, they all were in the third person omniscient point of view. The narrator simply dived into the story full on and told you everything. This is why many of us naturally lean towards stories told in this style. You thus wish to know more when you find the story to be covered in this perspective.
The author also gets to cover more ground by telling us more about all the characters. Through this perspective, the author can see and tell of the thoughts and actions an reactions of all characters, which makes getting the meaning of the story much easier. You will get to know how each character felt about something that happened to all of them. This prepares you for all the things these characters shall finally do.
This style is also the best for carrying the authoritative voice of an author. In the first person point of view, we only get to hear or read the story as if it was one person’s thought and actions that mattered. But this style of storytelling helps the author expand their vision and delivery of the story. The author is in charge of the way the story’s details shall be revealed. We get to listen to your voice, not that of one character.
It is also the best point of view when you are telling an epic story. There is no better style to tell a story that covers many years, with many characters in it, across vast lands and territories. This shall be an impossible feat to accomplish if you go any other route. You can use those in other forms of writing. As for fantastical works of fiction, you need only use the omniscient third person point of view.
This is also the best way to show action in a story. The fact that you can cover so many character points of view adds to the clarity of action scenes. Most action is not limited to one person’s acts. You will therefore not manage to show it well when you think of that one person.
