Three Points Of View Challenge
In my last post I told you about the local writer’s group and a challenge.
Anyway, I am using the prompt that the writer’s group passed out at the last meeting for my challenge.
If you don’t remember what the challenge was, it is to write a short story or paragraph using the three different POV’s
So here is my short story, “The Spy” using first person point of view.
I peek through the crack in the louvered doors at the sleeping woman. Rubbing my cold hands over my warm arms, I shiver, and wait. I hear her moan and see her open her eyes. I step back into the shadows and hold my breath. When my confidence returns, I return to my position and watch her throw back the blankets and sit up. I see her stand up and stretch her arms towards the ceiling. Afraid she will see me watching her, I move back by the cotton dresses when she walks by the closet door. I can hear her sit down at the vanity. Staring at the closet door, I crouch down and wait. I see the knob turn and the door opens slowly. Now’s my chance and I jump out at her. I see her hands fly to her chest as I yell out at her, “Boo.” And I giggle seeing her shocked expression.
“You scared me, Gretchen. Come here you little spy, you.”
I wrap my arms around her neck. “Morning Mommy.”
Over the next few days I will post the same story using the 2nd person POV and then the 3rd person POV. I will post them on this blog post, so you can compare all three versions.
These are the websites I used as guidelines in writing the different POV’s

And I am off! But I seem to have a busy week planned here on my blog, so you will see me quite often over the next few days.
Happy Monday Everyone!
