The next challenge I'm supposed to be doing is re-writing an old piece of story with a change of POV from 1st to 3rd of vice versa.

This should be fun.

But there's one small problem.

I hate everything I've ever written. None of it seems worth re-writing.

I feel like that means I should give up, but I think it probably just means I should go to bed.

Unpleasant feeling, all the same.

This is a promise to myself that I will do it. I will!

Third to First

Rewrite a part of an old story of your that was originally in the third person in first person (or vice versa). When you're making this change, count the number of hes or shes (or Is) in the original piece. Reduce the number by half in the rewrite. Use a relatively small section of a story or novel.

Wordcount: 500 (+/- 10%)


  1. Aw, I'm sorry you feel that way about your writing! Don't forget that everyone else loves what you've posted so far though :)

    And I guess that's part of the challenges - writing without as much pressure (funnily enough). I couldn't find anything to rewrite that I liked either, but it's practise all the same.

    Looking forward to seeing what you come up with :)

  2. Aww... thanks for the encouragement. I guess it's just being one of those weeks. Doesn't help that I have an evil headcold.

    Things will get better. Rinse and repeat!
