Which are you comfortable when writing your story 1st or 3rd person?
Wow. I dunno how to say this, but I feel like I'm getting smarter by reading this thread.First person if you know your character's personality. It comes with the advantage of knowing your characters first thoughts and how he sees the world. It also allows you to point out his immediate emotions and how he reacts to the situation.
I find the third person easier to tell stories outside of your immediate character. Like little details like how other characters are feeling or thinking. I also find it easier to describe outside entity without having the constraint of knowing that your character doesn't know what the object he is describing.
Dialogues are also different to write in first person and third person.
For what I'm comfortable in.
First person for a character you know really well. Inside out.
Third person for a focus on story rather than the characters.
Of course, there are ways and tools one could use to write regardless of Point of View. But it's always better to go with what you are more confortable in doing.
It's about the process of learning and improving yourself! I'm still an amateur at it too!Wow. I dunno how to say this, but I feel like I'm getting smarter by reading this thread.
I usually just.. write.
