First Person or Third Person

2 Feb

Revision that involves changing first person perspective to third person perspective is a bit on the tedious side, since I’m going through and changing pronouns. A problem I’ve found with this by getting rid of “I,” I end up with an awful lot of “she” and “her,” between Violet and Amaryllis interacting together. I just looked over a paragraph before changing it and now suspect that it works better in first person. Of the three editors who gave me feedback on this manuscript, only one of them said I should change it to third person, so maybe I’ll just ignore that after all. Or maybe I’ll continue changing it later, after I’ve worked on plot development more. Decisions, decisions.
I’m lucky nobody said I should change it from past tense to present tense.
