Many writers have problems with staying consistent in point of view: the perspective from which text is written. Often this problem is caused because the writer is intentionally trying to use inclusive language. More often though, the writer isn’t aware of the shift.
Here are two examples of shifts in points of view and how to correct or avoid them.
“We thought that the exegesis was going to be fairly easy—until we got the first test. You were not only graded on specific words but how they related to the rest of the text.”
This sentence begins with the pronoun we (3rd person singular) but the next sentence switches to you (2nd person sing. or plural)
Correct this by changing the you to we.
“One must study many hours everyday if you intend to pass Dr. ??’s class.”
First of all, who is this one person? Unless you are writing fiction, it is impossible to write about a mythical person named “one.”
Next, the sentence changes from one (1st person singular) to you (2nd person sing. or plural).
Change this to, “Students must study many hours every day if they intend to pass Dr. ??’s class.”
