So I'm getting a bit frustrated at myself. I keep switching between third and first person, and trying different ways to use them. I'm doing this since I want to write my book in a way that's personal, but I also prefer the flexibility of third person. Anyways, that's not what I'm discussing. My problem is that I've been doing this sufficiently enough to reach a decision, but every time I do I keep second-guessing myself and reverting my decision. Even when I say 'that's it, I can't change my decision.' I end up doing just that. It's a bit frustrating. It'll shape my entire book, and I'm really devoted to this book, so I don't want to get it wrong. But it reaches a point where it's no longer proactive work, and simply blocking my progress. Does anyone have tips for this? Ways you move past your indecisiveness? I was contemplating getting other people to read my work and decide which one they like the best, but that's purely opinion. I want this decision to be my own, since I'll be unhappy writing it otherwise. I'm not sure there's even an answer to this. I just wanted to vent a little, see if I can get any help. How about another question then, just to feel this post is validated. What's your opinion on using first person for your MC, and then switching to third person when you want extra depth to a scene/character? I tried it and while I think it's good in theory (at least it sounded good in theory for me), it becomes quite jarring to the reader. Ruins the whole point of first person, since you feel a disconnection from the MC whenever it happens.
