I've always been a little reticent to write in first person POV (point of view) because you only know what that one person knows and interperets. That is, unless you change POV at some time and the narration changes for a scene. But unless that is done carefully, it can confuse your readers and upset the flow of the story. What I'm interested in, is how to create a well rounded story with three dimensional characters in first person POV and still create tension and suspense.
Because of this curiosity, I've decided to break away from my usual third person POV and write a story in first person. For a new writer this can be a challenge, but no worries, I'm up to the task. I enjoy a challenge! I believe that it's important to step out of my comfort zone and experience a little tension and suspense in my life too.
So, if you want to expand yourself, try something new, or something you've been avoiding. Even if you don't do a perfect job the first time, you have succeeded because you have expanded your boundries and you have stretched your limits to add a new experience in your life.
