Frankly, I think writing in FIRST person point of view is MUCH easier than writing in third person. Why?
Here's my number one reason:
When referring to parents, do you write:
1. Abby's mother
2. Her mother
According to "Uncle Orson's Writing Class" you should use Mom (basically). To quote: "You refer to the parents by the names or titles that the point of view character would use."
But... according to http://www.megchittenden.com/writingtips/?pid=8 you should use her mother (basically). To quote: "She was getting sick of her mom yelling at her for something that wasn't her fault."
What's your vote? I think I'm going with Uncle Orson. Back to the revisions...
