After outlining the rest of Averill, I’m starting to make a stab at editing Mona’s story from first person to third person.
I am going through line by line, but for expediency, I did a blanket change making all “I”s into “she” and all “me” into “her” – helps me make sure I don’t miss any.
The change lead to some interesting findings. Some inner thoughts, well, they don’t convert well. Not unexpected. What was unexpected was the number of omniscient third sentences. I had thought changing it over would put me in tight third person. Not the case at all.
Looks like I’ll be girding my lions and doing a major rewrite, not just an ‘edit’. We’ll see how things go!
Oh, and now have two agents in mind to submit to. Having that goal should help me stay focused.
