Write in the third person perspective.
- Instead of using “I,” which would be first person, or addressing the reader as “you,” which would be second person, you want to address the characters by their names.
- You will want to use the appropriate pronouns to maintain this perspective. These include he, she, his, hers, him and her.
- When you write in the third person omniscient point of view, the narrator is usually an unknown entity. Even if the reader does know who is narrating the story, it isn’t an important element of the story. In first and second person perspectives, the narrator plays a starring role in the work.
