Point of View

I’m having a tough time here, about 14,000 words into Prodigal. The point of view is generally shifting between the three main characters. In the next chapter (11, for you bankruptcy freaks. All two of you.), there’s a pivotal moment where a doomed love triangle comes together in the hospital. I can’t decide whose viewpoint to use. I think it would be equally powerful from any angle.

So what to do?

I think I’ll write this chapter three times: one for each main character. Maybe that will help me decide which direction to go. The hard part about that is once I’ve set something down, I feel like that’s it — it should be done. Guess I’ll have to get over that if I want this chapter to get written.
