Hi Paula - Yes it can be tricky with all those perspectives. On the first draft of my novel, I had 12 POV characters. I clearly didn't know what I was doing when I started! LOL I've cut it back to five, but some would even say that's too many. I agree that the flexibility of third-person is a winner. I've written short stories in first-person, but not sure how I'd go on a full-length novel. Thanks for stopping by.
