Hi Nola, I wrote a short story in second person as an asssignment when doing my Masters at Tabor a few years ago. From memory I think Rosanne Hawke gave me a distinction, but it was really hard to get it right. The following year I decided to change my thesis novel from third to first person. It took me nearly a year - and about 15 drafts - of hard work to get it right.
Hi Trevor - Thanks for that. Did you submit your story anywhere? If you were able to pull it off, you'd probably have a good chance of getting it published because it's rarer. I haven't tried second-person for a full story yet; only for writing exercises. But I think I'll give it a go, at least for a flash fiction piece.
And good on you for having the courage to change your POV in your novel. I can imagine it would have changed a number of things, but would have been worth it to get the voice right. Thanks for your comment :)
