sartorias has a really interesting discussion about writing first person: First Person POV. The best discussion is taking place in the comments, I think, with lots of different ways people experience the world. For the first time I'm trying my hand at a first person novel and it is hard. I miss my good old third person a lot. But for this story, I think maybe it works, and I will be taking these different ways people experience the world into consideration as I write.
