First person is easier, you have an excuse to get past the fact you’re not a literary genius if you write in character.
I find comedy easier to write from a first person POV but no preference.
I prefer third person, the most common voice used in literature. I'm sure at some point I will grow tired of the third person and experiment with first person. A lot depends on the plot. If the plot is hard to swallow (alien creature abducts woman and forces her into servitude), then first person voice will allow the reader to suspend his or her disbelief easier. First hand accounts are considered more reliable than second hand.
"Deep" third person.
I'm really not a huge fan of first person, although I don't let that stop me from reading something--in fact, Steven Brust's Jhergh books are first person.
For romance, however, I typically want to see both sides (or more than "both" if it's a menenge story). I've read a few that were either first person, or only gave us one character in the third person that were really good, but those are harder to pull off, IMHO.
I like both, although I tend to write in the third person.
I have written my books in first person. But I don't think I would mind any voice.
He prefers the Third.
I have written in both first and third person - I like them both, depending on the story. First person is nice because it allows you to delve very deeply into the head of one particular character and tell the entire story from their point of view. Sometimes this is exactly what a story needs. But third person is great because it allows you to jump from character to character - sometimes this is easier to write, since you can work on whatever storyline catches your interest on a particular day.
First person. It's easier to connect with.
Having said that I'm currently writing in the third person.
Whatever happened to second or fourth person?
I definitely prefer to write in third person as an omniscient observer.
If you look at my works, you will find that I love both equally. For me it all depends on the impact I want to have on the reader.
I have never written anything in first person. In my opinion, that should be reserved for memoirs.
