New POV: New Problems

I've switched POV again and the writing is suffering. Lightening bounces the POV back and forth between two MCs, with one anomalous chapter (so far) in a completely different POV. When I picked up again I started in the anomalous chapter. Then I took the female MC. Now it's my male MCs turn. So just when I had found Kit's voice again, I've left it. Now I have to find Kevin's instead. But in spite of that I did (just) manage to get 500 words in today, so it's not a complete disaster.

  • I've never looked at changing pov's like this.
    I've always felt very comfortable changing pov's, and never really think about it.
    Interesting to see your take on it.

  • I don't usually have this type of problem with changing POV either. But because this work has been stalled for so long I have to find the voices of the POV characters again. Apparently that happens one character at a time, as I actually write them. I suppose I should be glad there are really only two of them.
