First Person vs, Third Person

Last night I suddenly found myself writing Chapter 19 in first person...and I began wishing I had written it all that way. I do not know why I chose third person. All of my J.T. stories are first person (although Troll Quest and my two adult novels are third person omniscient) and it seems to come more naturally which is rather weird. Until J.T., I had never written with all those "I's" and "me's" and "my's".

With the deadline for NaNoWriMo being tomorrow, I am not going to change the narrative until after it is over. Then I will read and make the call.

I've found that some scenes come easier in first person, and then I rewrite in third. It'll be interesting to see what you do. :]
