I’m not sure where this goes, but I feel like it’s a general writing topic since it’s more about writing style than characters. Initially I only wanted to write this story through my MC’s viewpoint. However, several of the other characters have really interesting plot lines that feel like a waste just to recap. But they don’t have story enough to be viewpoint characters. That’s when I thought of Interview with the Vampire, and possibly attempting something in that style. If you haven’t read it, the story is written in third person, but also in first person, as the vampire tells his tale to the reporter. Although it would happen several times during the story, I’m worried this would be too jarring. In Interview, almost the entire novel is the interview. Whereas in my novel, it would primarily be from my MC’s viewpoint, and then suddenly someone else for a chapter as they tell him what has happened. The thing is, I feel like just switching viewpoint character is just as bad for my story. I don’t want the reader to know more than my character (me knowing things about the story while the main character is clueless are one of my pet peeves). Also, each character would just suddenly have a chapter without explanation. Any thoughts on this? Other ways to do it?
