Writers: Which point of view do you prefer to write in/feel most comfortable?

- 1. First person ("I")

- 2. Second person ("You")

3. 3rd person ("he/she")

- 3a. Objective (no knowledge)

3b. Non-objective (knowledge)

- 3b1. Omniscent

- 3b2. close/limited 

So I guess the dashes are the options to choose from. :)

    I prefer first person, which is fully acceptable, often preferred, in my genre. I'm also at ease with close third. I've written in second maybe twice, and it does not flow naturally. No matter what I'm writing, it sounds like a Choose Your Own Adventure book.
