But now that I'm a 1/4 of the way through, I'm having second thoughts about what point of view I should be in. I've always thought that sometimes third person can be kind of boring, like it's always ____ did this, he did that etc, and that it's easier to convey emotion in first person.

So which do you prefer, third person or first person?

BQ1: Which POV do you normally write in?
BQ2: How do you convey emotion in third person?
BQ3: Ever written a story in second POV?
BQ4: What did you just eat?
BQ5: Got any pets? :D
