Fiction group

I’ve got a question for anyone from the fiction group who remembers what my piece is about… short stories with a car theme, remember? Since I’m not sure I’ll be able to meet with the group next class because I’m in Allison’s seminar, I wanted to get some input from you now. I had planned to write all 5 (possibly 6) shorts from a girl’s p.o.v. Do you think I should try a boy’s p.o.v.? Would be it better if all the stories were the same (girl’s)? The shorts that I was thinking about taking on from the boy’s p.o.v. would be about getting your first car, and witnessing/helping out at a tragic car crash. I guess I am thinking that the car theme is enough of a common thread between the shorts, so if I wrote from different gender p.o.v.s it wouldn’t negatively effect the commanlities. Any thoughts on this would be appreciated!

My working title for the collection is RIDING IN CARS WITH BOYS but I’ll probably change that since 1 story has just the driver, no passenger, and if I write from a boy’s p.o.v. then I would have to include riding with girls!
