Have you found a way to avoid using the word "I" too much in a first person story. I've written a first person story before, but I'm writing a new one now and I just feel like I've been using "I" so much. I try to change it up so it isn't the first word so much, but it just seems to keep appearing every paragraph. Any suggestions? Or is it assumed that the word "I" will appear this much in a first person?
