I never really spend time considering the point of view of my manuscripts. I just write whatever feels "right" as I begin my story. That means that my first manuscript is in first person, while my current WIP is in third person.
Now, I'm wondering if I should be less arbitrary with my point of view decision. Fifty pages into my current WIP, I'm considering a change to first person, like my first novel. I just don't think third person is working well, especially since a major conflict of my story is my main character's mental illness. In a first person point of view, I think I'll be able to better capture her inner turmoil.
Before I take the time to transform my entire WIP into first person, I'd like a second opinion from my wonderful blogging community. What do you think?
Do you have any POV preferences? How do you choose what POV to use? Are there any POV's that you dislike as a reader? As a writer?
