Figurative Language Person Narrative
541 wordsOne of the most important decisions that an author has to make when writing a story is how it is to be presented to the reader. Whether its going to be a first or a third person narrative, what kind of language is to be used, and the writing style of the author himself, play an immense role in the story.
