Change POV and Change the Story

I had finished writing a creative non-fiction story and felt disappointed. I knew the story had potential, but it fell flat. I asked a friend to take a look, and she suggested changing the POV from third person to first person. The change breathed life into the piece and it was accepted for publication.

Today's writing prompt is a photo prompt. Write a short scene or story based on this photo based on the POV of the person or one of the animals pictured. If you really want to see the difference POV can make, write two pieces from two different point of views.

For those who want to improve their writing, take advantage of a Special Session of F2K: Fiction Writing for the New Millennium for only $10. Class starts tomorrow! June 5. F2K is the most popular creative writing course on the Internet, and this session offers a free 60-day membership to Writer's Village University. For those who want to attend the author chat schedule with me -- that will take place on June 8.
