There is no real wrong answer to whether you should choose first or third person when deciding on the narrative perspective. However, there are some things you should consider as you decide, such as the genre, how much information you need revealed, the main character(s), and the connection you want developed with the reader.

In this episode, Leigh and Ley debate the uses and problems with both main perspective styles to help you make the decision on your own.
