For the next few days we’re going to be concentrating on point of view. Sometimes it’s tempting to write all our stories in the same kind of voice. Not this week. I’m going to give you a real work out and take you through many different types of voice and story.
Ready? Let’s get started.
Write A Story Using The First Person Voice
- The whole thing should be told in the “I” voice.
- It should, for preference, be a story about something that happened/is happening to the person telling the story.
- When writing in the first person you can never allow your narrative to stray inside another character’s head. The “I” character can speculate about what other people are thinking, but everything must come from their perspective.
- If you fancy it, try writing the same story over the next few days, but each day from a different perspective.
