Personal narratives are generally told from the first person point of view, which is exactly what Meredith Oxley does in her literacy narrative. But what would happen if Meredith told her story from another character’s point of view? What if she wrote from her mom’s perspective? Would the story still be true? If one of the reasons we write is to learn, what learning might occur if Meredith rewrote this story from her mom’s point of view? What if the story was written from the point of view of an inanimate object, perhaps from that of Meredith’s insulin syringe? Is that even a possibility?
