Ok. Brain wave - need help.
For my dissertation I'm doing a story about a girl who was 100% sure she was pregnant, but went to the doctor and was told she was not. She lives her life happily for a few months falls in love falls off the wagon and then drops a sprog in the middle of ASDA. I'm having problems with her voice. I've changed it from 1st person to 2nd person and back again but I can't seem to work out what is bugging me. So what do people think of mixing the two. I'm thinking slightly biased but ultimately omnipresent 2nd person narrator punctuated with entries from her BLOG so that I can develope her voice but also keep the narrator (a very sarky and biased voice) who knows more than her but doesn't let it all on. The other thought is - should I actually make a Blog for her? step into her character and really get into her head? and then include screen shots in the story..... or am I going too far for a 10,000 word story?
What do we think?
I would be greatful for any input.
