Hi, I know the extreme basics...I was taught that 1st person is when you use "I" and tell the story as though you're the narrator, 2nd person is when you refer to the characters's name (instead of "I") and don't place yourself inside him/her, but you also focus solely on the viewpoint, limitations, mindset etc of that one character, and 3rd person is writing like you're God and you can see into all the characters' inner workings. I know there's more to it than that. Can anyone fill me in on what I'm missing? For example, what are the multiple types of 3rd person? And did I get the 2nd person part wrong? A friend told me that 2nd person is rarely used. Thanks!
