How to use the different point of views
A point of view (POV) is known as the narrative voice through which the story is told.
The three-point of views are first person, second person, and third person.
First person POV
The narrator talks about themselves, so the reader understands their thoughts, experiences, and opinions.
The first person point of view uses the words: I, me, my, mine, myself, we, our, ourselves, us, etc
➜ E.g. I failed my exam, so I had to retake it.
Second person POV
The narrator talks to the reader directly. The second person point of view uses the words: you, your, yours, yourself, etc.
This point of view is not commonly used.
➜ E.g. To make great lamb chops, you must marinate the meat well.
Third person POV
The narrator talks about other people, so the narrator tells the story but is not part of the story. The narrator may or may not know the character’s thoughts and feelings.
The third-person point of view uses the words: he, she, him, her, it, they, their, etc.
➜ E.g. Jenny looked forward to going to Amy’s house. She hadn’t seen her in weeks.
