Writing multiple characters is scary. So, I did a little research, found here
for anyone who is interested. They had some excellent advice on how to handle multiple characters.
One of my biggest problems with writing multiple characters is I always feel the need to give each character equal "screen time" so to speak. I want each character to have an equal amount of POV time, as I feel that's how you make each character important to the story. And, as a result, I always trip up and am unable to move forward.
The articles I found touched on this and how characters don't need equal POV time to be important. They also talked about the importance of having a "main character," someone to focus on so that your story doesn't feel like it's all over the place. And that the fewer "main characters" you have, the better. This makes me feel slightly better since I do have two focus characters. But I'm still having issues with wanting to give everyone equal POV time. This makes me nervous since I have several story ideas that have multiple characters.
It's also odd since there was a time I used to feel comfortable writing multiple characters, when I didn't worry about giving each character equal screen time. I just wrote according to what felt right. I wish I could get that mindset back. I'm now hoping my NaNo story will help retrain me on handling multiple characters without getting caught up in trying to write everyone's POV.
