I primarily use the third person except in my personal journals.
I much prefer first person which is very natural to use.
I prefer a very tight third person, both for reading and for writing. However, I have written short stories in first person.
Third, although I have written in first.
Third person as it lets the writer see all events to describe them. The author lets the characters speak to the reader and may present more than one character's point of view.
Mostly the first person, but sometimes I mix them.
The most challenging is first person, which is how I wrote 'Marsface.' It didn't start out that way; I intended to write a very traditional sf story with a male protagonist and narrated third person. After trying and failing, I finally started a fifth or sixth draft with the female protagonist describing her surroundings and feelings just to introduce the story, and ended up doing the whole thing from her point of view. Once I committed to that, I was determined to make her flawed and not always likable. Its tough to maintain reader interest too, because everything you know must come through her filter. It was the right decision for this story. So rather than liking one over the other, I would say the story has to determine which one works best.
I much prefer the third person, although I do write a number of stories in first person.
I have no preference..Depends on the story and what works best for the natural flow.
Personaly, I like third person; however, in many ways this depends on the subject and the character.
I enjoy reading both and have recently taken more of an interest in first person. However, I have not yet tried to write in first person.
I like to write in the third person style, This seems to be more productive for me
I really love first person, but it's hard to write without getting too tedious with all the details. I also love the omniscent point of view because you can get into many different character's heads and build a great story around them. Of course, you have to be skilled into doing that, because your readers can get very lost and frustrated.
I write in 3rd person, but enjoy reading 1st person just as much.
