I also thought this paper was really challenging and i don't know how well i am going to do it...the quiz we took was interesting because it showed me how much i really understood the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd person dialogues.

I was thinking of using 1st person, but this made me realize that 3rd person would be more effective for my story.

Wow I never thought about how difficult it's going to be to write my paper in third person form. At the same time it kinda helps me stay distant with the characters.
