As you know, I tend to write in the first person point of view. I also tend to have 2-3 main characters that can take the “I” position. I try to make who ever is the “I” character obvious in the first paragraph of the new chapter. The feedback I get on this is a bit mixed.
One group of readers state they would prefer I put the name of the “I” character as the heading of the chapter. Seems that this group tends to have a higher occurrence of YA readers then the other group, but sample size is not big enough to validate that observation.
The second group tells me that is unnecessary and my transitions are normally well done and easy to follow.
So my question for all of you is this… assuming a couple-few main characters do you prefer the “I” character be placed in the chapter heading or handled by the text of the story itself? Something like “Chapter 1 : Vydor.” Of course the third person chapters might be a bit trickier. Might do something like “Chapter 99: The Old Man” or “Chapter 15: The Seven”
Reply in the comments and let me know what you think! 🙂 I am thinking about adjusting Volume 4 based on this feedback. So please speak up!
