Thanks a bunches.

Explain your opinion in great detail.

Bonus Question:

1) When you read books do you prefer first, second, or third person?

Uhm. it depends

I sometimes write in third person, if im doing a story in which i have created a developed world for. Lets say i created an entire continent and have a specific adventure in mind, i tend to write in third person, because i have specific goal in mind. My characters are also created in full before starting the story (their personalities ect)

however, i tend to write in first person, if i am going for a short focused story, usually with a small group of characters. I write in first person for this style of writing because it gives me free range in creating my characters and making changes to them, depending on the situation said character is put in during the course of the story. Most of the times i choose this style only when i have not actually planned ahead of time, and it was a "spur of the moment" idea.

I was trained to write in 1st person at school - I believe I'm better at it. I did rebel though and write some stories in 3rd person but I don't get as good grades for those.

not too much. I'm not all that great with second person, mostly because that concept is still pretty rough to me. I always grew up writing my own stories in class, and i find i normally drift into either first person or third person over the course of the story. never really notice if i do second person.

I don't think I could write in second person either.

It sort of depends on what you want your story to do. If you want to make things more personal, that's easier to do with first person. If you want your story to be more descriptive, that's easier with third person. Second person is a bit awkward to work with, so I use it when I feel it is needed and only when it's needed.

That's a bit difficult to answer, I normally tend to write in third person for short stories and whatnot, but in the novel I intend to write, I think I'm going to go with some form of first person or possibly a fusion of first and third. Maybe third person limited. I really need to start writing it to figure out exactly how it's going to go. Describing my intentions is difficult. I voted for third person because that's most common for me,

I once wrote a gay time travel love story in first person for my 12th grade English class, but aside from that, it's always third.

I think you unknowingly created a new genre.
