@LaurenIpsum - In my opinion, this is a duplicate of this question, since the answers so far could be applied to each other with minimal modification.

Nathan, thanks for the interesting question. Have edited your title to make the main point of the question more obvious.

comment How to format multiple inner voices, differentiating the text from dialogue? and omnipresent inner voice
There's no need to be nasty towards this user; remember it's a site rule to be nice. Also, this doesn't address one of the main points of this answer, which is multiple internal voices.

By the way, the example you use, the "Thomas Covenant" books, are an old favorite of mine but also contain some of the most pretentious, self-absorbed writing I've ever read. (That's part of their charm, I think.) So if that's an influence of yours, you might want to form your own opinion on this matter. Let's take this to chat if you want to keep talking about it, we're getting a warning about this extended discussion in the comments.

Sounds like you found a "how-to" writer with an axe to grind. That seems like an overly broad generalization to me. First person can be accessible and effective, and third-person can easily become arty and pretentious.

I'm not sure where you've heard this. First person is very common in genre fiction. Do you have statistics on this, or a source? (Perhaps this is a separate question?)

I think I understand the problem, and have edited the title to reflect this. Reed, please feel free to revert my edit, or further change it.

comment Can you write a pro-racism book?
The question is vague and speculative. Why are you asking? Is it legal in what country? Are you planning such a book?

comment Trying to make a gun making scene realistic
Agreed this is a better fit on worldbuilding. I'd close this and migrate it, but it seems it's already been asked there, so there's no need. Closed this as "too broad" even though that's not the real reason. If you'd like to edit this to be more about the writing than the research, please go ahead and we can re-open it as a variant question.
