So, What Perspective Do You Like To Write In?

First Person = I
Second Person = You
Third Person = She or He
Buchanan Perspective = Fourth Dimensional Entity founded upon some variant of Literature at the Quantum Level (i.e., the book you're reading is just a shadow of the fourth dimension. In the fourth dimension, the Buchanan Perspective holds).

The Buchanan Perspective is so far above my humble brain; Pat Buchanan can only control my mind in small segments.

And thus, I write in the third person.

I don't, erm, don't really have a perspective. My stories are in all types of ones. However, the second and the Buchanan Perspective I have never really...done. Buchanan Perspective is much too far out of my brain capacity, and the second perspective I just don't...relate to.

So, technically, er, technically speaking, I just do the first and third perspectives.

Buchanan perspective!

I dunno, really. Whatever perspective it sounds best in. I do like to tinker with combining first and second person. Fun.

I'll try anything!

Though admittedly, the Buchanan Perspective sounds a little bit out of my intellectual realm.... plus I didn't know it existed until about forty seconds ago.

But still! Where's a pencil?!

Hmm...I would have to say the B-perspective. I mean, isn't Pat the answer to everything? I use that answer on all my fill-in-the-blank questions at school.

First or 3rd. I'm trying to write a bit more in 1st but it's pretty hard. You swap the detail you lose for the personality of the character you gain, so it's pretty much worth it.

I tend to write best from third person, but I dabble in first person also.

Most of my really good short stories turn out being from a first person perspective, but I use third person as well. Whatever strikes my fancy is fine, really.

My first novel is totally gonna be in Buchanan perspective, though. :P

Emerson says...

Third tends to happen without me noticing but lately, so does second. XD Although, that's entirely an accident. I wrote second inside of third...

But first person also suits me. It's just nasty, you know?

I like first and third. I switch around a lot between them. I change tenses too. Sometimes past sometimes present... I think my writing is getting to be very confused... :-D
