Great article. I wanted to stay objective about the events, and not introduce my opinions.
My mind likes to glide seamlessly along the words on the page…. Epics or stories with big casts, stories that cover a wide time period, even some thrillers such as political thrillers can successfully use omniscient POV. Please read the rules before joining the discussion.
Mixing character voices in narrative or internal thoughts and feelings jar the reader out of the story. I suspect that this statement is the key: It also makes them bond with your characters more strongly.

I cane on this site because I have a friend who is just beginning to write and goes to a writers group. You say: Head-hopping is often used to describe the way an author abandons consistent use of POV to jump willy-nilly into the head of whatever character he or she chooses. Brilliant article! However, as a writer there are definitely times when it would make my job easier!

This is interesting to read about. A murder mystery starts with a murder. Give up on trying to control them. Hope that helps.
I am on my sixth or seventh revision.
