I found this a really useful prompt. POV’s are a weakness of mine and I’m working on them. I get so easily confused. This made me work hard even though the piece isn’t very good.
Nice! This prompt caused me to rethink the current scene in my WIP.
Loved it. I managed to add another possible scene to my WIP!
