Hello everyone! So, those who have already bumped into me should know that I've been working on something for about a year now... So far, it's been ssslooow going people. With NO real education in novel writing -- aside from some research on the world wide web -- I'm flip flopping over the perfect style of writing for my story. In your opinion, what on earth do the majority of paranormal fiction loving readers prefer that would possibly make the story more captivating and successful? OR, what usually works best to keep things flowing smoothly for the writer in this particular genre?? Believe it or not it's really too soon for me to tell... I'm torn... like the pages in my story will be if I don't figure this out!! I really don't wanna get to the middle regretting the style I chose to go with... hmmm, what to do what to do... So far it's been third person for me... a whole lot of "so and so said, he/she replied, Frank took a deep breath and continued," etc... after almost every statement! I'm trying to seperate each character and keep the reader up to date on who said what... know what I mean? I'm having issues with the fact that when I review a chapter, there seems to be a lot of repetition concerning that type of stuff. I really don't know how else to keep all of my characters in line with this style! Is first person a better read? I'd love some advice so that I can finally move this thing along!! Thanks everyone!!!
