The Point of View of a Short Story

The selection of Point of View of a short story has been for me a difficult journey in writing. I have not mastered it, as yet. However, in this website you will find short stories written in the Third Person and in the First Person.

Read some of the short stories, and if you have a mind to, please read Death at My Door. It is the only short story written in the First Person. I believe I chose well for the character of Johnny, who is awaiting execution for murdering his mother. As I mentioned earlier, it was difficult to write because the First Person character is a young man, and I am a 67-year-old woman, but imagination, avid reading, and life-experience can always help an author in writing about unchartered waters. Please comment and share your feelings about my work.
