It is when you are narrating a story that would involve writing in the third person. And for this condition, the writing is referred as a form of narrative.
It is then better to understand what is writing in the 1st person compared to the narrative form of writing to be able to write as in such 3rd form.
First of all, writing in the 1st person view is writing situations as if seeing them yourself, like in the point of “I” view. To cite an example, your sentence will be written in this way, “The first time I saw her face, I thought she is really beautiful.”
The next type of writing is in the second person, and it is written to “you” as the point of view. Thus, you will read articles written like “If you have not seen a beauty, take a look at her.”
In the case of the 3rd person writing, the writer is acting as the narrator and he or she is not really in the story written about. If you are the narrator, you can describe the events or situations of your story to any mode or manner you like. Imagine the narrator making up the story in a light hearted or heavy way, and speaking the thoughts of another person even without the knowledge of the other person.
So, if you want to write following on the 3rd person way, there are some pointers that you can consider to help you.
The first tip is to decide the point of view that you want to tell about, like if you stay in one character’s point of view (or limited) or from all of the characters’ points of view (or omniscient).
The next pointer is to decide the objective of your narration, whether your narration is only about the actions of your character or narrate all of both thoughts and actions of the character. Note that in third person writing, the objective is to account the actions of the characters and you do not narrate the feelings or thoughts of the characters.
The third tip in writing in the third person perspective is the choosing of the voice of your character or characters, and this is considered the fun aspect in this type of writing. Depending on how you imagine your story to be, you have the decision to make your character an ill-mannered person, or a witty one, or a somebody from society, and even you can form a person to make your character or make a group of characters to comprise in your story.
