That being said, I am one sad puppy. I am feeling sorry for myself and for my wonderful characters in my second novel. They are unique and sexy and they are languishing in the worst first draft ever written. I usually sketch or use photos to help me visualize my new players and, as they stare down at me from my bulletin board, I can’t meet their eyes.
However, I think I may have stumbled on part of the problem. I wanted to write this novel using a dual third-person POV. Or not. My funny ironic voice is just gone. The story is too serious which in SFR is not a good thing. So, I may go back to first person POV. I know this changes a lot for writer and reader, but making my readers smile is important.
What do you think? Does first-person POV make a novel funnier? If not, what third-person POV novel made you laugh?
Any suggestions, guidance or commiseration is welcome, folks.
