The narrator is not a character in the story but focuses on the thoughts and feelings of a single character, usually using pronouns like "he," "she," or character names. The reader gains insights into the inner world of this character but is limited to their perspective. *Example:* "She watched the train pull away from the station, feeling a pang of regret. If only she had spoken up sooner, things might have been different."

**Third-Person Limited:**

This voice directly addresses the reader using "you," creating a sense of immediacy and involvement. It is less common in traditional storytelling but can be powerful in drawing the reader into the narrative, making them feel like a participant. *Example:* "You open the door, hesitating before stepping into the dimly lit room. The air is thick with anticipation, and you wonder what awaits you inside."

**Second-Person Narrative:**

In this voice, the narrator is a character within the story, using pronouns like "I," "me," and "my." The reader experiences the events through the eyes and emotions of this character, providing an intimate and subjective view of the story. However, the reader is limited to the knowledge and perspectives of this character, and the narrator's reliability can be questioned. *Example:* "I woke up to the sound of rain tapping against the window. Another dreary day, just like every other since she left."

Little did he know that she had been waiting for this moment, planning her words carefully."

Narrative voices, also known as narrative points of view, refer to the perspective from which a story is told.

The choice of narrative voice significantly influences the reader's experience and understanding of the story.Understanding narrative voices is crucial for writers to make intentional choices that shape the reader's experience. It allows readers to engage with stories on different levels, empathize with characters, and analyze the themes and messages conveyed. Each narrative voice offers unique opportunities for storytelling, influencing the pacing, tone, and depth of the narrative.

This voice presents the story from an external, observer-like perspective. The narrator only describes the actions and dialogue of the characters without delving into their thoughts or feelings.

They exchanged a few words before he left for his meeting."
