I'm writing in third person because I want to express the standpoint of both of my characters. Everything's running smoothly except for the part where I want to describe their kiss. I'm in conflict with the idea that in whose POV should I describe the emotion they have during the kiss.
These are the possible options I have and also that the problem that I face with those:
Option 1: I should stick to describing only one person's emotion.
Problem: I want to describe both of their emotions. Period.
Option 2: I should write both of their feelings.
Problem: How do I do that?
- Simutaneously describing? I feel like I'm flitting from 'he' to 'she', 'him' to 'her'. I feel disconnected and so will the reader.
- One passage each? First 'her' feeling and then 'his' feeling? It reads way too long than the time taken to actually kiss. Also it might seem to look like it's being repeated. Shortening it would make it way too small for each.
So can you help me in solving my conflict and problems? Can you help me suggest a better way of carrying this out?
