I've (almost) always been a third-person narrator. Now I'm dabbling into first person. I'm finding, with a mixture of pleasure and pain, that it presents its own unique challenges. I've decided, after receiving some feedback from my Writer's Craft teacher, to thread together photographically realistic memories with strands of inner monologue that show emotion and personality in content and word selection. I'm also trying to be concise, by including imagery and musing that furthers the story, and omitting stuff that doesn't. My first attempt wasn't so successful. Hopefully the second draft is. Anybody want to share techniques, tips and thoughts?
