Here's a fun little dilemma I'm struggling with. The ridiculously short version of my story is that it starts with a woman in a mental institution talking to a doctor. She was found in a weird costume and holding a bloody sword, standing over two dead people. According to her story, there were two other vigilantes in town as well, and they are the real dangerous ones. I'm about a third through the story by now, and that leaves me with the dilemma where to take the story now: 1. Should I keep everything as a single story with just one MC, ending the whole thing with the woman finishing telling her story? The story would be quite straight forward, but it would also be more consistent and let you care more about the MC. She's the only one who really matters, and we don't even get to know if the other two exist at all or if they are in her head. Maybe the whole story was part of her imagination, or simply a lie. 2. An alternative is to end her part with her finishing her story, but leaving a lot of loose ends. We then move on to Part 2 with one of the vigilantes as the MC. Part 3 will have the second vigilante as the MC. If I do it like this, each part can be independent (yet very much related, but from a different PoV). That means I can leave loose ends in one part and tie it up in another, but it doesn't have to be chronologically. I mean I can have loose ends in part 1 and solve them in par 2 and 3, and I can have loose ends in part 3 and solve them in part 1 and 2, and so on. I would normally go with my own advice and write them to see which one I prefer, but that's a bit tricky when we're talking two thirds of the book.
