I've been reading a ton of YA Contemporary lately. Some really great ones like 13 Reasons Why, Peace, Love, and Baby Ducks, Story of a Girl, The Disreputable History of Frankie Laudea-Banks, and Cracked Up to Be.
Only one of these is in third person.
The others waiting in the pile are first person. That's a lot of first person.
My current WIP (44,000 words now!) is in third person. But now I keep slipping into first. Because of what I'm reading? Or because that's how the story should be told? Ugh. I don't know. I can never figure this part out. I'm keeping it as third person, for now, at least until I get plot details nailed down. I'm not afraid to change it. Or too lazy. It just would've been nice to get that piece of info in my brain earlier. Aw well. I wanted to try a new point of view. And I did. It seems to be working, but it might change. Talk about an overhaul. We'll see. I'm not touching anything yet.
