I am currently setting out to write my first, what I hope will be, novel. In the way of fiction I have only previously written short stories. I have started to write from two points of view, and found I am including two protagonists. I don't want my story to loose its focus by writing in this way or to become confusing for the reader. Is it best to alter the novel to focus on one protagonist and one point of view or is there a way I could balance my viewpoints to prevent the narrative from becoming too confusing?
