Or else he's invisible

“The wind makes the leaves go swishy swishy. I hear a kid shout, maybe in another yard behind the big hedge or else he’s invisible. God’s yellow face has a cloud on top. Colder suddenly. The world is always changing brightness and hotness and soundness, I never know how it’s going to be the next minute. The cloud looks kind of gray blue, I wonder has it got rain inside it.”

Inspired by Room, I’m over at We Heart YA today, talking about unusual points of view.

    It’s definitely fun when an unexpected point of view is used well. Not always easy to do. There’s a reason that the “staples” are the staples. They makes sense, and it’s easier to write!

    I wish I had something to add to your post there, but I can’t seem to think of a good use of an unexpected point of view at the moment. If one occurs to me, I’ll be sure to post it…

    Oh, haha, it’s okay, I didn’t really expect comments on this post. :P

    And yeah, the staples are a staples for a reason, I agree! Definitely don’t want to see “gimmicky” POVs.
