Which point of view should you use in your writing? I’ve always been partial to first person point of view because it creates more oppertunities for the writer to add in personal feelings but that’s not always the best option. A good suspense novel wouldn’t be quite as good if we knew everything that was going on the whole time. It seems like the majority of the books I have recently read are in third person because of the advantages of being able to withold more imformation. Some books don’t seem to even have a point of view constantly shifting back and forth from person to person and getting the same scene from diferent perspectives. I’ve never quite understood that point of view. Which point of view do you use and which do you enjoy reading?

Voices in my head or in my writing…its all about point of view!
