Making Molehills Outta Mountains

So I decided something very late last night. Or maybe early this morning?

I need another rewrite on MS1. I know what's bothering me about it - it lacks an important POV. From the outside, adding a POV might seem like no biggie. I've got the story and the dialogue, so I just change who's narrating, right?

Unfortunately, adding a POV can be sticky and complicated. It means the reader will take rides in someone else's head, resulting in not only already-written scene POV changes... but whole new scenes, because we're hitching a ride inside someone new.

Dammit, this would be a good time to be idealistic and have no attention to detail, because I'm staring at a mountain and thinking *UGH*.
