Curious to see what you all think about this. So this idea visited me a few years ago, while I was still working as a cashier. It absolutely possessed me at the time, and I found myself scribbling outline notes on the backs of flyers when the store was dead. The idea never left me, and I definitely plan on writing it once my current WIP storylines are finished. What do you guys think about a story written in the second person? For those unsure what I mean by this- a book's narrator speaks of I or me in first person, him or her in third person, but you, in the second person. This would make the protagonist of the book the reader. The narration would address anyone reading it as you, someone who has become trapped in the fictional world of the book brought to life in their mind's eye by reading it. Super meta, I know. There would be a colorful cast of other characters who are also trapped inside, who all address the reader as you, and have their own stories. Some of the biggest mysteries would be who the cryptic narrator is, why the reader is the only one who can hear them, and if you can every truly outwit it. The book would read like a "choose your own adventure", with cues to turn to certain pages to continue the story, depending on your choices. The reader would meet different characters, see different locations, and experience different conflicts/resolutions based on their choices. But, to unravel the whole story, they would need to tread down several main narrative tracks. I think this could be a truly engaging and unique read for people! It's very challenging to write in the second person (I've experimented with an intro chapter before), but it could be worth it! What do you guys think?
