This year I am writing a novel.
An interesting thing occurred as I have been writing The Nameless Files. I can’t say when it happened and I only noticed it recently. Use of the pronouns “I” and “me” has changed when I am writing. They are no longer “I” and “me” the writer. Somewhere along the line, when writing, “I” and “me” became the main character!
It was a strange and exciting thing to notice that “I” and “me” were not Shari, the writer, but instead were Delta, the main character. When I sit down to write I become the main character thinking, speaking and talking about herself.
What does this mean? Did I achieve some new level in the evolution of a writer?

One thought on “Evolution of a Writer – Who is “I” and “me”?”
Oooo, that’s fun! You must know her so well at this point that you can put on your “Delta” hat and write as though you’re her. I like it!
