I've always written in third person but as I set out to begin my new book I had the overwhelming desire to write it in first person. Through my research I got to know the main character so well that I felt myself imagining what she might have been thinking and why she behaved in certain ways. Writing in third person just felt wrong.
So after debating with myself for a few days I decided to take on this challenge. My goal is to build the world around my character while also providing a very personal view point. As I said I generally prefer third person but I know that first person novels can be just as powerful and engaging.
Perhaps, this will be a flop but I’m happy to try something new and trust my instincts.
In other news, I was craving Indian food today and was so happy when I found out my local restaurant delivered that I nearly cried.
C'est la vie.
