Re: First-person narratives
One of the things I like best about first person stories, is that you tend to get a lot more of the character's voice and personality in the narrative.
You can get that some with some third person stories, but not to the same extent that you do with first person.
Over the course of many encounters and many years, I have successfully developed a standard operating procedure for dealing with big, nasty monsters. Run away. Me and Monty Python.
