A Vase of Wildflowers

I'm a writer because I have stage fright.

Weekend Writing: The Dual Perspective

I’ve got a challenge for you. Can you write from two perspectives within the same scene? I’m not talking about third-person omniscient. I’m thinking you’re stuck inside two heads and two heads only. I’m not so sure I can pull this one off successfully. What about you? Are you up to the challenge?

Challenge: The Dual Perspective

Word count: 4,000 words or less
Genre: flash fiction, poem, short story, essay, song, scene from film script or play, etc.
Due date: next Friday*
Prompt: Write a scene where two characters are narrating what is happening around them. Have other minor characters involved in this scene as well. How are the two main characters linked? Is it told to us up front or is it a surprise at the end? How do you differentiate between the two characters? Write clearly so the reader can understand what is going on.

*If you want to share your writing with us, link your work to A Vase of Wildflowers on your blog and make sure to place the link to your story in the comments of this post.

    You’re hand fits in mine like its made just for me.
    But bare this in mind it was meant to be
    and I’m join en up the dots with the freckles on you’re cheeks and it all makes sense to me.
