I am asking the community now because I am stumped. I had originally planned for my next story to use close 3rd person. As I do in my current one. But .. I just had to start writing the first scene of this new one (my character was insistent), and I found myself writing 'me'. 1st person. But I have not only this one POV, the others are also important! So my question is, can I mix 3rd person close (for the others) and 1st person (for this one)?? Would the reader understand? Or is that too confusing? So far I have planned 4 POV's, all more or less equally important. My two MC's are among them. And one of them insists just now to speak in 1st person. I would not consider writing for all of them in 1st person, that would certainly be 'a little' too confusing So, any advice? I am about 100 words into the first scene just now. Thanks a lot in advance!
