This exercise is a favourite with English teachers everywhere, but its use isn’t limited to exploring POV characters. You can also use this worksheet to gain some perspective in your day-to-day life.

Here are some point of view prompts you might try…

  1. Rewrite your day from someone else’s point of view.
  2. Rewrite your opening scene from a minor character’s point of view.
  3. Rewrite the story of how you met your best friend, from their point of view.
  4. Take a passage from your favourite novel and transpose it into another point of view.
  5. Try to write an omniscient account of everyone you encountered this morning.
  6. Write a 2nd person “choose your own adventure” style account of a decision you made or are considering.

P.S. Have I missed any important POV terms? Let me know!
