Wish Me Luck

I have decided to write the new Haxan novel I am working on in first person POV. I think this is the right move for the story and for me. But mostly for the story because I have always been of the opinion the story comes first. My wants are secondary to that and always will be.

I’m a little nervous about this decision and excited. I hope this is the entry point I have been looking for. I’ve thought about this a long time. It doesn’t change what the novel is about or what I want it to say. I can still demand the lift and work from the novel I want. Hope so, anyway.

I mean, I’ve tried everything else, right?

So. First person POV. I start work on it today.

Wish me luck. Please.

Sometimes you gotta take a chance....

  1. Good luck! First person POV is hard to write and sometimes to read! I know you’ll make it work

    Good luck! I know when I switched my novel to first person it helped tremendously.

  3. Awesomesauce. Sounds terrific! Best of luck!

  4. Good luck! I hope you have WAY better luck writing in first person than I did. ๐Ÿ™‚

  5. Good luck! I find first person tricky because of tense issues (it seems to switch back and forth between present and past in a way that deep 3rd does not). But it offers a lot of wonderful freedoms you do not get in 3rd.

  6. GOOD LUCK!!!

  7. Good Luck!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

  8. Wishing you all manner of luck and bravery in taking this one “on the chin”, so to speak!
