This challenge from 3 AM Epiphany, Point of View Exercise 1: The Reluctant I, is to write a 600 word story from the first person point of view using “I” only twice. Let’s talk about HARD!
In 2012, I wrote this story as a response to a writing prompt. It was shared live within some churches across the east coast by friends and people who read it and asked if they could do so. I have read it in Toastmasters meetings and shared it in live readings over the years. Today I took it out to dust it off, improve it a bit, and remind myself of the power of sharing our stories.
