Occasionally I have written a short story from the first person viewpoint, but I hadn't intended it. I started writing and that was how the character and story seemed to fit.
Now I'm in the same situation again with this 1920's story- hopefully a pocket novel.
As I've been writing blocks of dialogue from the ideas in my head, I've been getting inside the mind of my heroine, but I do wonder if that will remain once I start adding description and narrative, or will I find I'm writing in the third person as usual?
Though the idea of using first person would fit this particular plot well I'm really not sure I can carry it off!
I suspect there will be a lot of editing by the time I've finished it-whichever direction it goes...
So what's your thoughts on viewpoint in your writing? Do you prefer a particular viewpoint, or does it depend on the story you're writing?
