I'm really having trouble writing in the first person. I have to write the word "I" in order for the reader to understand that the narrator is talking about himself (I realize that I don't need to tell anyone here that; it's just to make my point.) How do I get around writing the word "I" every three seconds? Here is an excerpt: Perhaps it's just a bit of ocd for me when it comes to writing. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
