Creative Writing 2.23

Are you writing your story from the point of view of the main character of your story or are you telling the story from a different perspective?

Explain the point of view you are telling from and discuss why.


Point of view
Point of View

  • Point of view is the narration of the story from the perspective of first, second, or third person.

  • As a writer, you need to determine who is going to tell the story and how much information is available for the narrator to reveal in the short story.

  • The narrator can be directly involved in the action subjectively, or the narrator might only report the action objectively.


First person point of view
First Person Point of View

  • First person: includes the thoughts and perspective of one main character, who's telling his/her own story 

  • The story is told from the point of view of “I.”


First person
First Person

  • As I walked up the hill, I realized that the atmosphere was just too quiet. There was no sound from the cardinal who was nearly always singing from the top of the maple tree. I thought I saw a shadow move high up on the slope, but when I looked again it was gone. Still, I shuddered as I felt a silent threat pass over me like a cloud over the sun.


Second person
Second Person

  • Puts the reader within the actual scene so that readers confront possibilities directly.

  • The story is told directly to “you,” with the reader as a participant in the action.

  • Turns the reader into the character.

  • As you walk up the hill, you realize that the atmosphere's just too quiet. There's no sound from the cardinal you know is almost always singing from the top of the maple tree. You think you see a shadow move high up on the slope, but when you look again it's gone. You shudder as you feel a silent threat pass over you. You feel cold, like a cloud just passed over the sun.


Third person pov
Third Person POV

  • The story tells what “he,” “she,” or “it” does.

  • Includes the thoughts and perspective of one main character

Third Person POV

  • As she walked up the hill, she realized that the atmosphere was just too quiet. There was no sound from the cardinal who she so often heard singing from the top of the maple tree. She thought she saw a shadow move high up on the slope, but when she looked again it was gone. Nevertheless, she shuddered as she felt a silent threat pass over her. It felt like a cloud creeping over the sun.
