Hi B, I've been writing different parts of the same story in many different points of view.
I've got at least 5 main characters, all speaking in first person. I then spent a week revising everything to omniscient...
spent another week reading every chapter on POV in my collection of writing aid books.
I had an idea to make one character in to the "listener", the one collecting all these stories from the other characters, but thought that might seem amateur-ish.
Any advise?
