Is it better to write in third or first person?
Depends on you.I recommend first-person, because all I have to do is pretend whatever is happening in the story is happening to me, and I just have to write down everything I would do, think, feel, and say.
It depends on what story you are writing and which point of view you feel would be more interesting. :)
The decision is completely up to you. I find it easier to write in third person because first person is more descriptive and precise when you use it. But that's my opinion :P
It depends on you style. In first-person, you only see the protagonist's thoughts. In third person, you can see several people's thoughts.
