The third person is the most common point of view used in fiction writing and is the traditional form for academic writing. Authors use 'he,' 'she,' or 'it' when referring to a person, place, thing, or idea.
The following is an example of a writing in third person:
"He met her at a conference where she was the keynote speaker, and it was odd to him that her laptop had a fountain pen sticker on it, because that was his favorite kind of pen"
