2. Writing furiouslyThe character point of view drives the story and in fiction, there’s a tendency to write in first or third person. Why? Because both give the reader an insight into a character’s thoughts & feelings, and third person has the added advantage of allowing for other perspectives.

But there’s a freedom and challenge in writing in second person, where you get to involve and engage the reader on a deeper level.

This week, the #wordspark challenge is to write either a short (up to ten lines) poem or a piece of flash fiction (up to 200 words) in second person. The theme is up to you – it’s your chance to play and explore.
