    Discussion in 'General Writing' started by Cacian, Nov 11, 2011.

    what do you call a book
    that uses only I/first person throught out.
    from the one that uses only
    third person he/she.
    from the one that
    uses both I first person and he/ she third person?

    I call them fiction or non-fiction, depending on whichever is most suitable.

    nothing to do with those, either...

    'narrative' is the part of writing that is not dialog [characters speaking]... the part that describes the scene and the action...

    'narrator' is the person who's doing the describing... that can either be one or more of the characters, or some unnamed 'observor'... and 'pov' [point of view] refers to the identity of the narrator...

    also, 'fiction/non-fiction' are not genres... genres are 'romance; sci-fi; mystery; horror' and so on...

    why don't you google for a 'creative writing glossary'?... that way you can study up on all the terms writers and publishers use... it'll save you a lot of asking and waiting for answers time...

    If you are a writer, the easy way is third persons use, to be able to manage to describe with intensity.

    And, What kind of novels likes you? I am reading an amazing novel called ''Join me in blood'', it's a fiction novel about vampires, warlocks, zombies... I found it in Amazon kindle. This is the vampires new generation undoubtedly... I recommend it!!! Yeahh!!
