Hi, does anybody know which of these ways of describing leaving a building from a third person limited viewpoint is correct?
1) He exited his quarters and headed to the pub.
2) He exited from his quarters and headed to the pub.
I'm not great on grammatical rules but the first puts me more in the viewpoint character's head. In the second the 'from' makes me think I'm watching him exiting from an omniscient perspective. When I'm exiting my house I don't see myself as exiting 'from' it. Actually, I see myself as leaving my house.
3) He left his quarters and headed to the pub
Would be the best bet?
