When using a first person or limited third-person point of view, the narration is limited to what that character knows or sees. But the narrative itself is in the viewpoint character’s own voice – his tone, his word choices, his attitude.

Freewrite the internal thought of your viewpoint character. What does he or she think about when:
  • Getting up each morning

  • Getting ready to meet a friend

  • After an argument with spouse or significant other

  • Doing a mindless chore, like vacuuming

  • Driving in rush hour traffic

  • 3333-24 Virginia Beach Blvd., Virginia Beach, VA 23452
