2019 Day 30 – Switcheroo

How did you get on yesterday? Did you write a story?

Remember, set your own rules, and stick to them. If you miss a day, don’t try to catch up. Just keep moving forward!

The Prompt

Take a story you wrote this month and rewrite it, differently

Sometimes a story works better in a different point of view, or told in a different order. If there’s a story you wrote this month, that you liked, and wanted to get back to, use today to rewrite it in a completely different way.

This will ease you into the idea of rewriting and revising (something I’ll be posting more about in June).

Consider these options

  • Rewrite it from in a different voice (1st person instead of 3rd)
  • Rewrite it from the perspective of a minor character
  • Rewrite it without re-reading the original. Only write scenes/incidents that you remember. (When you compare them, if you find you’ve forgotten certain things, what does that tell you? Is it stronger or weaker without them?)


What did you rewrite about today? How did it turn out? Leave a comment.

  1. I returned to the story outline and character profiles I produced for the Day 26 Conflict prompt. This time I decided to write in the first person. It flowed much better and the characters were more powerful. Only 985 words though.

  2. Phew, I’ve been off the grid for a few days. Work was overtaking, insane. But I am here and sitting at 30 for 30 and the most recent three all very different. Day 28 – a continuance of Bumchin back to school Day 29 – impromptu spoken word inspired again by Shane Kozycan and finally; Day 30 – something had been on my backlog for a while, definitely be interested to get feedback on that one. https://afstoryaday.blogspot.com

    1. Day 30 has me hooked. I’m like, What? What? What? Is there more? Does the rest of the story happen in the reader’s mind? WHAT???? One of your most compelling.
