My Thoughts On Reagan’s Story & Writing Styles

For some reason I like telling the story in past tense with flashbacks, it allows you more options in getting a bigger picture of your character and the dynamics of their personalities and lives. I am able to go back and relive an area of their life through a flashback. My character telling the story can also tell the reader how they got to a certain point and how they felt about something from the past and reflect on it more. Writing in the first person narrative to me has always been easier for me to write because I feel as if my character can have a relationship with the reader. I have always loved reading and writing, and over the years when I read a story told in first person I feel more engaged with that character, because I feel as if I am in on a secret or the character trusts me enough to share their private thoughts with me if that makes sense. I know that may seem strange. When I studied writing in college and HS I tried different styles, but first person was always the style I seemed to like most for me as a writer. 
There are certain stories I feel are best written in third person because the advantage of that is that you can get a broad sense, understanding and unbiased opinion on many characters all at once. For example, one of my favorite stories of all time is Pride and Prejudice. It’s more endearing and engaging learning about societal norms and class from a broad sense, from the author. What Mr. Darcy and Elizabeth were really like, Jane Austen also did a wonderful job explaining who they really were and explaining their biases about class, society, relationships, loyalty, and love.
