Alternating person view
The more I look at stories from different angles, the more it affects everything I do. My husband and I watched a movie the other night and for the first time ever he was on the side of the woman and I was on the side of the man. When did this happen? But I could clearly see from the male point of view how the situation could have developed.
Of course, we agreed to disagree. This means I firmly stated that he (my husband) was obviously wrong and possibly turning into a little girl and we decided to move on from there.
But what struck me is how much the story can change depending on the point of view. I am currently using a first person female pov. This is more comfortable to me because it feels as if I am telling you the story. What are you using? And do you play with different ones? Or ever thought of how your story would change if another character were telling it?
