I'll call it Project: Frankenstein. This is the short story I want to submit, due Friday. I started it last night. This is foolish!
The structure of this story is a guy telling a story to his friends. I'm trying to decide: once he starts telling the story should I keep it in third-person, so the reader "sees" the story from a birds-eye view, or shift to first person so the reader remains aware that a story is being told by this character. Both options feel right, and both options feel wrong.
