The use of "I" in sentences written from the first person perspective. Of course you are going to use "I" to write a sentence from this perspective, but i feel overdoing makes the text to standard and not attributes to the story. Perhaps something like "I took of my coat, and then I looked at the watch that I just bought one minute ago."
Am i missing something, or is this something writers do think about?
I think about it, even though there's no rule of grammer against it. It simply doesn't make the update sound quite as good.
Also, a lot of foriegn people who might not understand those nuances write here, which may be what you're seeing.
