I am working on a new anthology now and I am very conflicted on writing the eight chapters in first or third person.
Now, the problem is that if I write it in first person, I may have a more difficult time with it because I have four characters that have distinctive voices. Writing each of the eight chapters and seven parts in first person sounds crazy to me.
Yet I am so tempted to try it because I honestly miss writing in first and I am crazy like that.
Third person would make more sense yet so would first person because I am focusing on four people only and those four are my main priority currently.
I don’t know why I am conflicted on something so trivial.
Seriously, I can think of the pros and cons of writing this anthology in first-person, but I am leaning on the fact that I just wanna write in first person.
I also have to add that I haven’t written in first person in some years and to go right back to it so quickly is going to be a hassle. I didn’t even start off slow with this neither.
What are your thoughts about this?
I know this is purely up to my decision and nothing else. But does it make sense to allow myself to get so worked up over this. Then I will turn around and rewrite the whole thing in third person anyway so it will be like what is even the point.
I just wanna know if I can pull it off after such a long time. Maybe I am overestimating myself and giving myself too much of a chore, but I can only help but to be curious.
Lend me your thoughts.
