I wasn't sure which section to put this in because it involves how you prefer to write and how you prefer to read. There are many different types of narration, let's list them here... -1st person - The story is told by the protagonist or one of the characters in the story. 2nd Person - The reader is the protagonist, usually a choose your own adventure book or something similar. 3rd Person Omniscient - a god-like voice narrates the entire story 3rd Person Limited - The story is still told by a god-like voice, however the knowledge is limited and future events are not unveiled. Depending on the person you might also hear of a few other styles such as third person focalized, but they overlap so much I feel as if I have made a pretty complete list. These tend to be the 3 most common forms of narration I just added 2nd person for fun. Which of these narration styles do you prefer when you read? Which of these styles do you prefer to use when writing? Vote for your preferences in the poll. Personally I prefer the third person omniscient point of view for both, I really don't like first person narratives very much they tend to get very confusing because of the lack or limit thereof of knowledge. Third person omniscient is good because when you're writing you don't have to conceal stuff, I always tend to forget to add things in later if I'm required to use limited. I also prefer to read in third person omniscient probably just because it's closest to my writing style so I'm used to it.
