It’s of course personal. But I like writing directly out of my brain 🧠
But when I’m writing a note for my future self, it’s in third person.
If you’re talking about writing in your journal/diary, 1st. person. I can’t use another.
really in the book, and it helps me relate to the main character more. I love 2nd and 3rd as well, but I think 1st is my favorite
I think off the bat, 3rd person is my go-to, but not necessarily my favorite. It's easy to work with and to read, and allows you to get into many different characters' heads instead of limiting to the protagonist.
1st person does this, and while it can be very good when you know your protagonist well, it can also be very bad. A 1st person story where the narrative reads like a narrative and not the character telling the story is hard to get into.
2nd person is definitely the most difficult, and I rarely see it done because of that. However, that doesn't mean it's bad. When done well, 2nd person makes for a really compelling way to pull a reader into the story and place them there as their own character.
I like all three, given the circumstances are right. Some are just easier than others, so the right circumstances come more often.
The important thing for me, is to be the first one for myself and I’m working on it!
3rd person is fun, I use it when I talk to my partner.
1st person is the place of belonging.
