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.



Interesting.

Is there even a point of view such as "Second Person"? I'm pretty sure there isn't. Anyway, most of my stories get written in first person.

Second person point of view is typically using the pronouns "you", "your", etc.
It's more like the narrator is addressing the reader him/herself, who is a part of the story?





I can only write decently in 1st person, since I can only portray how one character feels at a time,
and it's hard to incorporate multiple characters' thoughts at once.
But since that leaves much unsaid,
I also tend to switch who the narrator is every now and then.

I like to write in first person, because I think I'm the center of the world lol. Also, I like to read stories that are written in first person.

I want to write in first person but I want to at least have other characters get their time. Writing third person is troubling to me far as describing everything.

I don't think I could write a short story or novel in second person. I read that some writers should at least practice that along with first and third person. Strange.

I always write in third person narrative... mostly because I get to be god and pull all the strings without having to put myself in the story. Plus, I like feeling as if the story is writing itself. Which is weird I suppose... considering... I'm the one writing it.

I can -tolerate- other forms of narrative while reading but I do not overly enjoy first person at all. I just... irks me. I sort of feel like it's telling me what to do...

Normally I write in first person but lately I've been writing in third so I guess it's a tie between the two. But if I'm writing a story and I begin writing in first person, I won't switch over to another point of view, I'll stick with it ^^

When I'm reading fanfiction, I hate first person and prefer third person. But when reading a novel or anything else, I'm not very picky (:

I typically write in third-person limited. However, it's not uncommon for me to write in first-person.
