Voice Week 2012

Voice Week is an experimental writing challenge to help us stretch our versatility in voice and tone. Each Voice Week participant writes five versions of the same story – from five different points of view. Then, October 1 through 5, we post, compare, sharpen, and grow.

It is organised by the BeKindRewrite Inspiration Monday team, and we’ll all be passing comment on each others’ stories.

Day 1 introduced Derek, and Chelsea. Day 2 was Derek’s point of view. Today we hear from Chelsea. Here is An old man take 3 …

“Oh, thank you, Chelsea.”

“I’ve got you a little pressy as it’s such a special day for you.” Well, it could be if you play your cards right. Flutter eyelashes, thrust the chest.

“That is very sweet of you, thanks.” Sweet! I’m not thinking sweet, just look where these puppies are pointing!

“I thought you would like to peel the wrapping off your special treat.” That should be the clincher. Oh, yes! He’s lost for words and fumbling with the ribbon. Let’s hope for some more fumbling later.
