Writing Wednesday-From 1st to 3rd

I have been working on my current novel off and on since 2012.

WHEW! That may sound like a lot but I swear to you that I have learned so much and continue to learn so much more about the craft of writing. Therefore, it is kind of a blessing that despite my most intimate desires, this baby has not be put out in the world. It’s not ready.

On the newest batch of revisions, I am changing the narration from 1st person to 3rd person. As you can imagine it is a feat! Some days I rewrite stuff and I love it. Some days I rewrite stuff and wonder if this is the biggest mistake I have ever made. I know I can be a little intense:)

I took a step back and did a little more research on writing in 1st, 2nd, and 3rd person and stumbled back on Grammar Girl. She literally offers some quick and dirty tips on keeping your pronouns consistent to the tense you are writing.  I advise all writers to give it a quick read.

 

Happy Writing Wednesday!
