Let me just start off by saying I have been writing ever since I was really young (Like at 9) and I always had a major dilemma, I never knew how to format my stories properly or whether or not I wanted my story to become a television series, a animated series, a movie or a book. So I just wrote down all of my stories in a notebook and in Microsoft Word. Recently I have decided to give books a shot and I have read my fair share of books and realized that most of them are told from a first-person point of view (Preferably from the MC's point of view I suppose). I never wrote from a first-person POV before but when I started writing I was really enjoying it but then, I realized something...How the hell am I going to tell important scenes where the main MC isn't present?! So here's the question: I want to show scenes that are crucial to the story where the MC isn't present (In my opinion I don't like when fantasy writers concentrate too much and ONLY on the MC just because he/she is the MC) but in order to show those scenes the entire book needs to be in a Third-person POV right? I'm willing to do that but I'm really enjoying writing from my MC's perspective so...Is there a way to shift from a first-person POV to a third-person POV then back to first-person PoV without it becoming sloppy? Any type of help is much appreciated--Please and Thank You!
