I love writing in third person, as it gives you a wider opportunity in adding scenes and etc that does not include the main character.

Honestly, first person turns me off a bit, as usually there would be less description and more action, and the word(maybe letter?) "I" can get very, very repetitive and degrading to read. =/

First person does have its advantages though, as it allows you to build up your character's personality far better than third person. Though, as for the other characters, it'll be harder to do that, as their personality must circulate only through the perspective of your main character.

I still can't understand what second person perspective means.
Too bad we don't live to experinece death

Owning our story can be hard but not nearly as difficult as spending our lives running from it. Embracing our vulnerabilities is risky but not nearly as dangerous as giving up on love and belonging and joy—the experiences that make us the most vulnerable. Only when we are brave enough to explore the darkness will we discover the infinite power of our light.
— Brené Brown
