head-hopping

headhoppingAt writers club last week, someone said that editors cringe when they hear the words “third-person omniscient narrator.” It was referred to as “head-hopping,” jumping into the mind of one character after another within the same chapter. I dunno. I am reading a book right now that is written in third-person omniscient narrator.  And it’s pretty darn good.
