“Hi, my name is Hilary and I have Point Of View Syndrome.”

I understand the general idea:
  • first, second or third person
  • pick one
  • stick with it
  • maintain consistent verb tense
Yet, the red scribble I receive most often includes the three dreaded letters: P.O.V. 

First person is easy, but I rarely use it.  This blog, having only been around a few short months, has already gotten more 'I's, 'me's and 'my's out of me than the remainder of my writing years combined.  Only two characters have spoken to me in first person.  They are my recurring short story characters.  Not much use in a novel. 

So, my condition persists.  And I’m beginning to fear it’s terminal.
