I'm writing a short story in first person with an MC who is a government agent. We read the story from her perspective in two forms: field reports she submits to her agency, and the private journal she keeps. I think it's a clever way to tell a story but it's tricky. Looking for tips and possibly references to works that use this kind of structure. I read Cloud Atlas last month and it does an excellent job with storytelling via journal entries, and that's probably where I got the idea. Edit: Holy god there's a NAME FOR IT: Epistolary novel.
