Point of View is a determining factor in conveying the mood of a story, so here is how I outlined the various Points of View in my subplots for Who By Fire, starting with my hero’s wife..
The grids above show both who tells the story from what point of view, by subplot, and whose story each subplot tells. I decided that I needed to make the voices of the various subplot narrators as distinct as possible, and some felt easier to narrate in 1st person than others, while I have always preferred close third for a full novel (even if I do seem to find 1st person far easier to write in, at least for a short story).

2.) Write a story, post or tweet that uses those thoughts.
