I'm a total newb here, and with writing also, so I apologise if I'm doubling up with something already covered, but I couldn't find the answer I need. Perhaps I'm not familiar with the correct terms to search either so it could be right in front of me. In short, if I'm writing a book about a father having to go to some extremes to save the life of his daughter, what perspective should I write that from in your opinion? I'm choosing to do it from the father's point of view so he is story A and I have another character to fill the position of story B. I have a tendency to write as if it's a screenplay because I am a teacher and I pretty much talk as if giving a lesson, subseqently I write in a way that is basically outlining all of the detail in the scene and how the characters feel based on what they see and know. Possibly not creating a single perspective and possibly stifling creative interpretation on behalf of the reader when in fact I'm trying to add to it... like I said I'm a total newb.
