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

untitledWhich 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?


About Everyrosehasathorn

So I have finished my first book, Every Rose Has a Thorn, which is available on amazon for free if you have an amazon prime membership, or 2.99 otherwise. This is a book about Emily Rose who is drawn into a battle between angels that want to not only destroy the world and human race, but for some reason want her on their side when they do it! She must learn that doing what is right isn't always easy, especially when you fall in love with a very dangerous angel! View all posts by Everyrosehasathorn

    Two of my books are written in third person omniscient so that the thoughts and feelings of the characters can be written. I’m currently writing another in first person, but think I may have to change it to third person omniscient as well. I want to share information that the narrator would not know.
