Plethora of Pronouns

I'm rewriting a novel I completed several years ago. One of my decisions was to shift it into first person. An observation from that effort: You know the complaint of the repetition of the pronoun I required in first. Get over it. You would not realize how many he-she pronouns we use in third person, until you go through a tense transition. Just as a reader ignores "said," I've found we ignore the number of pronouns, too.

Write Every Day!

Regards, Mac
