going from 1st to 3rd person narration
I’m not sure how I’m going to do this, mechanically I mean. I’ll have the whole of The Sleep of Reason written in first-person narration, and I’ll want to rewrite it in third person. So how will I do that?
Will I read one paragraph and write the revised paragraph immediately below it on the screen?
Should I print each chapter (what a waste of paper!) and have it at hand as I create new files in the computer?
Should I have the first-person draft show on one screen while I write the new one on another? (This is possible since my old, glacially slow laptop could sit side-by-side with my newer one — now two years old — and justify its existence with such low-demand work.)
I suppose I’ll work out a solution, but right now it all seems clumsy. Any suggestions?
