Recently, I submitted a manuscript to my publisher, so now it's time to sit back and wait. Or at least try to. The problem is, I've never been the patient type, so waiting to hear back is like asking my children to do their chores or homework and then waiting for them to actually do it. The reality is: It's not going to happen any time soon.
Since I can't pester my publisher like I can my kids, I've decided, instead, to focus on my next novel. Ideas have been churning, but it's also made me stop and wonder about narrative styles. These days, more and more books are written in first person (ie. "I said," rather than "he said") It used to bother me to read them, but I have to admit they've grown on me over the years. So I thought I'd put this question out there for anyone to answer:
Do you have a preference between first or third person? If so, why?
I'd love any and all feedback.
