The story that I'm currently working on is centered around an Eldritch Abomination
who has to pose as a high school student to find another Eldritch Abomination
who is wanted dead or alive, and, well, it doesn't exactly comprehend some of the more basic aspects of human morality
, despite studying them. The story's main plot point is that its callousness and utter lack of respect for its classmates leads to ruined lives and underlying conflict.
The kicker is, I'm writing the story in first-person, from its point of view. Any tips on how to do this without making the story unreadable due to lack of sympathy? I plan on making it (the character) fairly . . . interesting, but not the slightest bit sympathetic. I have at least one idea to lighten this up if it becomes a problem (shift point of view every few chapters), but I hope I don't have to rely on it too much.
How often should I have it disagree with my/the reader's viewpoints? How often should it cross the line? Stuff like that. Thanks in advance!
