I want to start writing, but I have run into somewhat of a pickle very early on. I cannot decide between first or third-person perspective. I absolutely love writing in the first person, but it can become very repetitive and it is very hard to 'show' not tell. And as a reader, the first-person narrative can become almost boring. Because it almost seems like your being told the story through someone else, rather than being transported into the story like in third-person perspective. For third-person perspective, I like writing it and I feel like you can fit more details into the story. And it allows to 'show' more than 'tell'. I feel like it allows the story to flow a little neater. However, I feel like third person does not allow the reader to connect to the character as much. Which can be good in some cases, but worse in others. So for all you writers out there, I am just wondering your thoughts on perspective, and which you prefer to write in and why. Also if you have any advice for me I would love to hear it. Thank you.
