Writing Prompt #8: Change of perspective

It is amazing what a simple shift in point of view can do to a scene, whether it is giving the POV to a new character who is also in the scene or it is implementing a complete narrative mode switch from first person to third person. This prompt requires you to pick a scene or short story that you have wrote and look it at it from another perspective. Pick a different character or narrative mode to tell the same scene or story. It should read drastically different, especially if you switch to another character, because every character is going to have a unique way of acting and thinking.

By the end of the prompt, you should have a deeper appreciation for the inner workings of that scene and possibly another character.
