Question
hi, i was wondering what would be the best way to put my story (in what tence) if it is fiction?
Or what person i should generalize it, because im pretty much lost when it comes to if im telling it 3rd person or 1st.
hope i didnt confuse you!

Answer
First person tense is when a character in the story is telling the story.

Third person tense would be when an omniscient being OUTSIDE of the story is telling it. Think of the third person narrator as God telling the story about someone else.

Which tense you choose depends on how you want to tell your story! I can't possibly decide for you! But if you want any writing help, please feel free to check out my Web site and contact me.
