Ferris Bueller’s Day Off is an awesome movie and definitely worth studying in more detail.
Shakespeare was a big fan of his characters talking to the audience as well, only they’re called soliloquies; a term which puts most people off.
But what if your protagonist tells your story directly to your reader?
Ferris Bueller isn’t really about Ferris Bueller anyway, it is about his best friend Cameron Frye and the whole day off is to help him get over his problems.
So why not even tell your story from the point of view of a character who isn’t your chief protagonist?
