Is it hard writing two different perspective? Especially since most of the time your characters have different personalities. Plus your giving two sides of a story

Katie McGarry Hi BookWorm,

Yes, it is hard to write two different perspectives, especially since I write them from alternating points of view. Sometimes one character has a ton of things going on and the other character doesn't. For me, it takes a lot of thought and planning to get the plot beats and emotional beats to match up for the characters.

Almost every time I finish writing a story, I tell myself that I'll just write one point of view next time, but then when I start a new story, I can't help writing two.

While it can be difficult, I absolutely love writing the alternating POV's.

Thank you,
