Point of View Drabble

Published by T.N.Korgan in the blog T.N.Korgan's blog. Views: 93

So I think my book wants to be wrote in a different point of view.

I usually write first person. I just find it easier to become the character and tell the story. I decided the most current book I'm working on was going to be wrote in third person. Barely three thousand words in and the story screeches to a halt, refusing to write. I wasn't sure what was wrong. I was so excited to start the first draft! I had everything plotted and research finished! But no, not gonna happen. I was driving home from work trying to decide what I might be able to do to fix this bout of writer's block when it came to me bright as day; I should write first person. Duh! I wasn't sure which character though. Still not 100% sure who but I have my suspests. When I was writing Rik (one of my central characters but not the main character), I slipped momentarily into first person with him. I have to finish analyzing the other characters that I didn't get to write yet, to see if they may be a better choice. Either way, I'm going to have to slightly replot. Maybe it's for the better...
