As it stands right now, I'm trying to write it in dual POV. I did this once a long time ago, and it was pretty easy, but this novel is posing a challenge because the characters are in different worlds (at least to start out). That's another thing - parallel worlds, something I NEVER thought I'd write. And because these characters are so different, and their worlds are so different, it's a little jarring to go from one to the other. Eventually they'll meet up, and then things should get easier (I hope), but for now, I'm a little worried. Their voices are very distinct too (southern girl in real world; old-fashioned stonemason in parallel world), so while I know my readers won't have a problem differentiating between the characters, I also don't want the reader to feel like they're trying to read two separate books at the same time.
Here are some main character ideas in case you're curious. (It was rough rummaging through photos of male models to find inspiration, but an artist has to be willing to make sacrifices for her work).
|His name is Christian Jorgensen if you're, um, bored.|
|My inspiration for Jolene, the female MC|
Anyone have any advice on this? Have you written a dual POV or parallel world novel, or do you know a good example I should study? I'd love your guys' thoughts!
