the whos and hows of focus

i titled this like i was going to give my take on the subject. i'm not.

i'm going to try to work it out, though.

i've always been of the opinion that you need a main character. i see why this might not apply to what i want to write, but it might cover my tracks if i only focus on one character because i fear all my characters will come out the same.

my bigger fear is that i can only make simple, boring characters. in that case, i might as well make an army of them and pop from one to the other as i push the story forward through mechanical methods.

i did determine one thing, though. i'm going to write in third person semi-omniscient.

see, i'm almost half-way there.
