I just love this picture! We can think of it on so many levels! But... since this is a writing blog, lets go with that point of view!
I wrote my current WIP in 1st person. I am seriously debating on redoing it in 3rd. Extra work? Yeah! Would it be more effective? Maybe. Can I write it better that way? Maybe. That's what I'm trying to decide.
1st person can be so cool, but also limiting to only one person's perspective. Depending on your story, this can be a powerful way to go.
3rd person can also be powerful. I think it allows you to create a more interesting and complex world. My WIP takes place in a different world than ours. It's a somewhat medieval type of era with fantasy and magic. I would like to bring that out more and wonder if the 3rd person POV might be more effective. Haven't decided yet, because the characters story is quite interesting too.
Since "P" is also for poll --- lets have some fun!
Want to share any of your answers? How do you decide what POV to write?
