I am thinking about writing this chic-lit novel and I was wondering about a few things. It's got 4 mc/pov-characters and I am thinking about how to go about writing the story from so many perspectives. each character has their own story and they all know each other. a)writing the story from one POV at the time, scene by scene until ready, then starting with another and repeating the procedure until ready and then cut it all (copy and paste) together like a movie so that the scenes jump from different perspectives as the chapters go by, like many books do. b) write chapter by chapter cronologically and switching pov while writing. I also wonder about the perspective: is it even possible writing from 1st person pov when having more than 1 POV character? I think most chic-lit novels are actually written in 1st person but then they rarely (from my experience) have more than 1POV character... Third person comes naturally to me and I write better this way but will it get a feeling of being less personal, less involved in the characters life, make them lose the feeling of reading someones diary that seem to be the reason some people like this kind of novels? also, when outlining (for those of you who do) do you outline all of it before even starting to write it or do you outline and write a chapter at a time? it feels a little overwhelming right now to plan the entire story before even starting to write, plus i don't have the whole story clear yet, but I think ideas may come by once I get started, but in the same time it's nice to have some kind of roadmap... please share your thoughts on this.
