I’m basically writing two books and will merge together once both are finished.

The main book is written in 3rd Person with multiple characters and the chapters are numbered.

The other book has only one character, written in 1st Person (and I’m using a different font type). I have numbered the chapters, but when I merge (inserting each chapter separately, where needed), it will throw both off….

So… what I’m thinking, wondering, what if I don’t number the “1st Person” chapters at all, or use alpha rather than numeric, along with the different font? Would the reader find this too confusing? I want the “mind’s movie” to continue without too much distraction.

Of course, when the merge happens, I could go back in a change all the chapter numbers… but would be a pain in the butt!

What do you think?
