I am a lurker and am currently considering undertaking a project that has me a little boggled. I know the idea of 'new concepts' will lead to a harsh reality and thus is my dilemma.

In the project I am working on, there are two main characters, each with their own set of... well, lives basically. But they don't ever come together often within the story. This is in fact a crucial point in the story. How would I go about this? If this was a screenplay (which I am used to), it wouldn't be an issue, but writing in novel form is much different.

The way I envision it is that both of these characters are seen in a 1st person point of view, but in the screenplay they are never together often.

Think of the movie Serendipity. Two people across the country find each other, yadda yadda. However, when they do come together how do you suggest changing the POV since they were both 1st person experiences on their own. Each had an equal part so not one person was more omniscient than the other.

Thanks for the help!
