POV

I've been rewriting some chapters from a different character's point of view the past few days. It's something I knew I was going to have to tackle but was a bit concerned about. You can't just change Danny to Breyona and his to her and call it a day.

Different characters see the the world differently; they notice different things, they interpret events differently, and they can't see their own faces.  So even though the objective events of the story don't change, filtering them through a different POV essentially forces me to rewrite the chapter entirely.

I'm just about a third of the way through the revisions, but it was the easy third, which is why I've bumped the progress bar up to 15% and not 33%.
