1st. Person vs. 3rd. Person Points of View

So I have been going back and forth as I am writing my book, deciding whether to write in 1st person or 3rd person.

The battle in my mind is raging on…..What to do?  What to do?

I had the brilliant idea to Google the subject and see if it returned to me some wisdom.  No such luck.  Just the basic response of which personal pronouns to use, seriously?

So as I was digging deeper into my found research, I find a summary article on how 1st person is considered more for novice writers compared to the more accomplished writers seeming to place themselves in the 3rd person perspective.

I believe writing in 1st person works best for me.  When I am writing, I can hear my voice as I take pen to paper.  Do you do this when you write?  My assumption would be, Yes!

One of the articles I read suggested I should write my book in both points of view, and I had considered this briefly when writing my first few paragraphs of my book.  But it just doesn’t seem to fit me and my writing style at least for now, anyway.

So I think I will continue to write in 1st person and continue with some more research.  I have accomplished a lot in a short amount of time.  I have some more reflections to look back on from this summer and my research that I have completed changed my perspective somewhat, and I thought I would share these thoughts of mine next week.  

Happy writings to you my dear readers!  School is coming upon us quickly!
There is much still to do!
