    Oh yes, sometimes a change is perspective is much needed- and wanted 🙂

    Good luck with that 🙂ReplyCancel

    Changing POV can be tricky. I went through that process a few years ago when I rewrote an entire novel from the third person past tense to the first person past tense. It was painful but well worth it because I could capture the MC’s inner thought better in the first person.
    Good luck with the edits.

      Yes, changing POVs is hard work but I’m confident it will make the story better. Thanks for the visit!ReplyCancel

      Thanks for the visit, Diane! Sending you lots of editing vibes!ReplyCancel

    I’m sure it’s a challenge writing in more than one POV. You’re approaching it with the correct attitude, so that’s a plus!
    Good luck!
    Happy IWSG Day!ReplyCancel

    I’ve never done that but it sounds like a great exercise to rework exactly the same scene from a totally different POV… one can learn a lot from it!ReplyCancel

      Yes, it’s required a lot of concentration and an ability to turn a mirror on the same scene. Thanks for the visit!ReplyCancel

    I’m working on changing POV on something (possibly removing one person’s POV, because I don’t feel I’ve made that character strong enough.) It’s a lot to ponder. Good luck as you do your edits!ReplyCancel

    I’ve done exactly the same thing before. When I’m writing, if the story simply isn’t working, I tend to find it is one of two things – either I started the story in the wrong place (too early or too late), or I’m using the wrong POV character. It’s amazing how much you can change a story by changing the POV.

    And I’ve had times when I’ve written a story in 1st person, and gone onto my next story in 3rd person, and I struggle to keep the 1st person out of it; I keep slipping up. So well done on doing it chapter by chapter – that must have been quite a feat!ReplyCancel

    I’ve been focusing on short stories, so have been in heavy edits of the ones I’ve gotten critiques on the last few months. I was so focused on submitting the ones I had edited and writing new ones for critique group that I got behind on editing the new ones.ReplyCancel

    The first place I’d have to see is the Serendipity coffee house to see if it is as magical a place as it seems to be in the movie of the same name! Thanks for the chance to enter!ReplyCancel

    • LucindaSeptember 3, 2014 - 9:21 AM

      I’ve seen that movie and I liked it a lot! I wonder if the coffee house is still there.ReplyCancel
