Freestyle Blogger Post

Here is another Zentangle I created. I love making these Zentangles. They are a great way to destress and enjoy doing one small thing at a time. The Zentangle saying is, "Anything is possible one stroke at a time." I believe that. Sometimes in life we think of all the things we have to do. It's easy to become overwhelmed. I tend to do this a great deal. Zentangle teaches me to slow down. Everything is possible when you take the time to think in the now and not of all the things in the future, most of which you won't be able to control anyway. That is why I love the art form of Zentangle.

Here is my Zentangle Mandela

Here is my Zentangle Mandela that I made last week. I didn't know how to do a mandela, so I used some youtube videos and my Zentangle books to help me decide what to include and some strategies on how to draw specific strokes.

The Point of View of My Novel-A Three Dog Life

The point of view of my novel, A Three Dog Life is, first person. I identified it as first person point of view because the narrator of the novel uses the word "I" and is speaking directly to the readers. The narrator's point of view and speaker is Abigail.This point of view allows me to view the entire story through Abigail's eyes.

Point of View in my book-A Three Dog Life-With Evidence

In my book, A Three Dog Life, the point of view is first person. Abigail tells us the story of Richard and Abigail's life. When Abigail tells us about what Richard is like after the accident,she takes us into his hospital room. It is a few weeks after the accident. Abigail visits Richard in his hospital room and they are each just sitting there. Richard is a very different man now that he has a Traumatic Brain Injury,TBI.

                  Yesterday in his hospital room my husband asks urgently, "Will you move me twenty six thousand miles to the left?" "Yes," I said not moving from my chair. After a moment he said, "Thank you," adding in wonder, "I didn't feel a thing." "You're  welcome," I answered.

This passage from, A Three Dog Life, shows the first person point of view through the conversation Abigail and Richard had in Richard's hospital room. The words "I" , "me", and "my" are our hints that this story is told through first person point of view. Abigail speaks to us, the readers telling us about this visit.
