Title Change!

Yes, the old title of "First-Person: Limited" is gone. Why? For starters, because there is no such point of view as first-person limited. There is third-person limited, but that doesn't quite have the right ring, does it? (Isn't the first person always, by definition, limited, anyway?) Even my addition of a face-saving colon could not hide the fact that I was making up a quasi-literary term. This Language Curmudgeon couldn't bear the thought of being subjected to one of her own Language Rants.

And so: The View Finder. Because a large part of this blog concerns itself with narrative viewed through a viewfinder at some point in its creation. And because readers can come to this blog to find views on current and older movies, on books and writers, and on language.

Read on, and enjoy it!


  1. The blog looks excellent and great name.

    Anyhoo, sorry for how promo/plug this is but I've recently started a writer's forum for writers who blog, basically because of the lack of interaction between reader and poster and wondered if you might be interested in droping by (or your readers) and taking a look.

    I'd greatly appreciate it
    thank you

  2. Thanks, Emily. I'll definitely visit the forum. Looks interesting.
    Thanks for letting me know about it.
