7/17/15 YOU and HE

Dear Bruce,

My thinking is that this piece I’m working on can be very effective as a second-person piece. This super-charged version of first-person can add a lot to creating an atmosphere of surrealism for the reader during the intermissions, and as these sections are quite absurd, I think the second-person POV is not completely unwarranted. I think one of the main things I’m struggling with here is to distance the reader from the character, as the YOU becomes a HE in one of the stories, and then it is made completely clear who the YOU is.

Specific details are the easiest things to differentiate the YOU from the reader, but do you have any other techniques that might be worth employing?
