    Perspective?

    Post by Roxanne on Mon Oct 27, 2008 8:27 am

    Which perspective do you prefer to write from?

    1st Person?
    3rd Person?
    Something different?




    I usually write in both ~

    1st person is good for when the story needs you to understand that characters thoughts but you can't/don't know any other character thoughts.

    3rd person is good for when you need to know everyone's thoughts.

    I find that 3rd person is easier for me to write in but I'm experimenting with 1st person too.

    I write in both third and first perspective. However, I've always wanted to try writing in third person omniscient, it seems interesting. Second person would also be a new experience Very Happy

    I usually write in first. I love first, it's much better for character development, but if there are a few main characters than 3rd is best. I've done second (so much fun!) and I've done plurals only.
