Thanks so much for the warm welcome!
Below is a link to a blog I created with the first 5 chapters of a story I am writing. I need help!! :)
I am confused about perspective and would love thoughts on this. The story is about a family whose youngest daughter suffered brain damage in a near drowning accident. Currently, the prologue and epilogue are very short and are written in the perspective of Lily, the daughter. The other chapters mostly switch between the perspectives of the parents, Julie and Jay, with a few chapters from the older siblings, Avery and Simone. The pros of this are that is covers all the varying view points and shows how each family member is so angry with the other. It shows how each individual is affected by the accident. That said, I am not sure if it is too confusing, switching between too many perspectives. Does this work?? Would love any thoughts you can share, and feel free to be as honest as possible :)
