Today I encourage you to take a second look at a story you’ve written before.
Take a story you’ve written before and write it again from a different point of view.
You can rewrite the events of the story, as viewed by someone else.
You could choose to use the original story as a jumping-off point, that simply informs your knowledge of this formerly-secondary character.
Feel free to write the story in a completely different form (if the first one was a series of letters, you could write this one in a more narrative form.

Still running way late, but I’ve got my planning post to offer – this was a good one for me, Julie, because it gave insight to other sides of the story arcs I’m playing with for both projects.
Here’s something I tossed out today… https://storiesin5minutes.wordpress.com/2017/05/15/second-look-storyaday/
I’ve already started my story for today, but I like this prompt. I’ve sometimes asked my writing students to take a favorite book (or movie) and rewrite a key from a different POV. It’s a fun exercise.
