Free For All Friday | Third Person Narrative

Image result for third person vs first person

Third person seems to be a growing trend and although I don’t like it, it does have it’s advantages.

Pros

– not tainted by one perspective

– can give a larger picture of the story, have a bigger plot or picture

Cons

– difficult to make the story intimate and really connect with the characters

– easy to lose focus of plot line and get lost in details

Now, in both of my lists it is pretty simple to see that it comes down to purpose and preference. For me, I enjoy the connection to the characters so I enjoy having insight into to their thoughts and feelings.

If you prefer third person, or have more points to add to my lists let me know!
