When I step into the skins of my characters, I think differently than I do when I write from the third person. My unconscious mind doesn't allow for me trying to fake it, either, by writing in first person with the intention of changing it to the third person later on. I've done that in the past and it doesn't work.
Now that I've realized I pretty much have to write my fiction from the first person, it leaves me with a couple of Issues:
- How do readers feel about having a book sectioned into distinct parts written from the first person POV of different characters?
- How do readers feel about having a book with alternating chapters: every other written in the first POV by the main character and the remaining chapters written int he third POV by other characters?
