I use all kinds of voices in my fiction. I use the second person singular a lot because it automatically draws the user into the story and lifts his/her disbelief. I use the third person plural when writing about doubtful group-think situations. I use the third person singular when I'm concentrating on plot and time shifts.
I prefer third person. First person seems rather limited with most of the subjects I enjoy writing about.
It kind of depends on the story for me as both can be used to their respective advantage. I actually prefer third person though. It's a bit easier for me to write in third person than it is in first.
It doesn't really matters to me. I like from both side, I choose which according to my story. I also like the idea of watching the whole story from just a bystander.
I like to hear the first person who read my work. I find it is fresh in there heads and I like everyone just to tell me the truth about my work, it helps me if they liked it or hated it.
I like the first person the most. It is very personal to see a story through the narrators eyes, and I think I can feel more of the story through the first person.
I like the first person voice better, as it seems even...louder? More profound? You're getting the straight stuff from the main player (or a main player), and it seems more...credible? Exhibit A: Catcher in the Rye. Would it have been as popular if it was "I knew this guy, Holden Caulfield, and boy, did he have problems"? I submit not. That's why I like reading the confessional or personal essay-style writers.
Again, a difficult question to answer with any degree of decisiveness. I use both in my writing, and for different reasons.
I tend to find first person more likable because it's easier to read in, easier to relate to, and easier to write in. I'm more likely to be sucked in by a description of how something felt from the character's point of view than from a third-person narration.
honestly, I really really like writing in first. I like the personal quality and it's what flows the most naturally, and I almost always use it for my poetry. I just have to be careful because I am afraid I will put too much of myself in the main character, and I want all my characters to be diverse.
I really enjoy and believe I have an adeptness for description, and I feel third person gives me more of a leash with this.
I would say though that for my writing, it is a 50-50 split.
Third person is more interesting and dynamic to write and suits my style better.
I prefer the third person. I tend not to like writing in the first person, with the very few exceptions of Bill Bryson and Sarah Vowell.
I prefer to both read and write in third; however I have experimented in first with a couple of my novels.
Spuds would like to know if you are asking him this question in an accusatory fashion.
First person most of the time, but it depends on what I'm writing.
