#BookEndsChat Does writing in 1P pov make it difficult to assess the author's actual voice?

Replying to @LaurenCahn

I’d say not exactly. I don’t think everyone can do 1st, so if it doesn’t suit your voice, it could be misleading. #BookEndsChat

@parmita_ I carry my Kindle with me everywhere and read submissions whenever I have a few quiet minutes. #BookEndsChat

@parmita_ It may just mean you haven’t found the right person yet. #BookEndsChat

@ninjahuggie It doesn’t hurt to ask, but your voice is probably something that wouldn’t change in a rewrite. #BookEndsChat
