So, I'm trying out four approaches on A Wall for Zombies:
1. Telling the whole story through the perspective of the dad.
2. Switching between two characters in first person. This has allowed me to delve deeper into the main character's mind. However, it's been hard to find two distinct voices.
3. Third person. This has led me to be a little more detached. I like the ability to switch scenes more easily and build anticipation. However, I'm not crazy about the fact that I can't offer any stylized prose and it doesn't always fit with a present tense active voice (which I think is the voice this story needs)
4. Third person with journal entries. I like the versatility of this, but it feels very cheesy. Really? Both the father and the son keep journals? See, it's a bit strange.
I'd love your thoughts on this.
