As I mentioned the other day, my current WIP is written in the first person narrative. Admittedly at the beginning of writing this novel, I struggled with the first-person POV. I wondered how to avoid using "I" too much. How to convey what's happenings without telling the reader everything. How does Val (the protagionist) express how she feels without saying it? Even as I continue to write, I can't say for sure that I know I'm going about this the right way. But I can say when I tried to write a few chapters from third person it didn't feel natural. It didn't truly expression the internal struggles I wanted to show by telling it from Val's point of view.
