I'm writing in the first person from a child's point of view. Is this too complex for an eight-year-old?
My feet tingled. It’s one thing to have an agent come and watch the show, but now the one coming is someone actively looking to cast for a new production. That increases the chances of being on broadway.
Or does it matter if the narration from the child's point of view does not have to represent exactly what a child would say when describing what they're going through?
An example I just found is Eloise in the Plaza. It's writing in 1st person also but Eloise is six. Here's an excerpt from the book:
I am a city child. I live at The Plaza. There is a lobby which is enormously large with marble pillars and ladies in it and a revolving door
To me, Eloise sounds more advance than a six-year-old, yet it seems to fit.
