Tuesday Choice Words

One of the challenges I've set myself for the year is to return to short story writing, probably tales linked to my novel, and within that I'm taking on another challenge, to write from first person point of view. Normally, my writing is third person but I want to see how limiting/liberating using first person perspective is.

Cesca Major talks about different points of view in this video. First person? Third person? Which do you prefer?


  1. I usually stick to third person. The one time I tried first person, my editor didn't like it because I used past tense. Some editors, not all, don't like first person with past tense. Good luck with your short stories! :)

  2. I love first person for novels, but my short stories are always third.

  3. I think it depends on your genre. Chick lit/YA/MG seem to use first person more. I just finished a first person chick lit novel, and I have to say, it was pretty liberating, albeit easier for me to write than my usual third person. It also depends on the story.
