When I started writing, there was no question that my short stories would be written in an omniscient POV. But, to my shock, when I sat down to write my first full-length novel (The Beast's Enchantress), it came out in first person! Some characters choose their own point of view, it seems, and Alexandria, strong heroine that she is, wanted first person.
I quickly realized first person is not so choppy and inelegant as I had labeled it in my prejudice. The high school English class injunction against using "I," "me," and "we" isn't fair or just. So far, I've written three novels in a POV I'd declared I didn't like and wouldn't write in! When I try to write a novel in third person now, I find myself slipping into first person. It's a good thing I changed my mind about liking it!
Do you have a preference for point of view? Why? What about tense? Do you like first person present, as for Storm Siren and The Hunger Games? I still find it choppy and prefer past tense, but will put up with it for a great story. Do you prefer a narrator as for The Hobbit? Or do you even care so long as it's a great story?
