Oh me gawd, third person or first person? Jesus, I can't even tell the difference between an adverb and a noun. Personally I like to write about people, as oposed to writing as if I was telling the tale from a personal perspective. it gives a certain distance between the author and his characters and makes it more plausible when the time comes to duff them up.
I can write both as my writing covers first and third person.
I've written from both first and third person and found advantages to both. I suppose the unreliable narrator approach has appeal because certain games can be played with the reader's expectations. However, in a book like Next by Christine Brooke-Rose, all the perspectives are mixed up, with the authorial voice switching between various characters and this can have great results too, I think.
Both. A strictly first-person narrative is limiting because, unless you cheat, you can only ever describe what that person sees, knows, feels or understands. Third-person narratives are also limiting because getting inside a character's head demands ponderous phrasing. I prefer to mix the two: sometimes we know exactly what a character is thinking; sometimes we are merely observers of events.
That depends. I do like first person, but the third person is actually my latest book. It is a bit corny, but I enjoyed writing it.
I like third person. I've written short stories in first person, but I feel limited. I like to write from other character points of view.
I do not like any books written in the first person, they are boring and hard to follow
I use both. A useful exercise, I think, is to transpose a story to the other voice. Some stories that don't work suddenly do work in another voice. It's also useful to play around with the narrative voice.
a mixture of both
I do both equally well, but personally I tend to enjoy writing in first-person more.
Content dictates form. One novel, 'As Recorded', I began in the third person, but when I was about 50,000 words in the writing of it was becoming laboured. Ad if it was tedious to write it would most certainly be tedious in the reading. So I switched it to first person. But then the narrator became overbearingly conceited. Come the end I wrote the whole book in the form of an interview. Jacobyte Books of Australia published it. Unfortunately it's out of print now.
third person, i find it easier to use for the type of novels i write
I used the first person for my debut novel: "The Art of Cunning Lingers," and also the latest one, "A Warped Sense of Uma," which is just out now. The novel I am currently at work on is written in the third person, which I am finding a more flexible medium, as you can show the perspectives of several main characters and also feed your readers information your protagonist may not be aware of until much later in the story.
