Writing Exercise - Third Person Omniscient Point of View

A bustling city café with patrons engaged in various activities: a writer typing on a laptop, a couple having a quiet conversation, and a barista preparing drinks. The café is filled with the warm light of the afternoon, creating a cozy and vibrant atmosphere.


Introduction: This exercise is designed to practice writing from a third-person omniscient point of view, where the narrator knows the thoughts and feelings of all characters. This perspective allows for a broader understanding of the narrative and the dynamics between characters.

Situation: At a bustling city café, several patrons are engaged in their own activities: a writer working on a novel, a couple having a quiet conversation, and a barista who is secretly an aspiring musician. Each character has their own story and internal struggles.

Writing Exercise: Write a scene from the third-person omniscient point of view, capturing the thoughts and emotions of multiple characters in the café. Highlight the interactions between them and the atmosphere of the setting.

Suggestions and Development:

  • Shift smoothly between different characters' perspectives.

  • Provide insights into each character's thoughts and feelings.

  • Use descriptive language to create a vivid picture of the café.

  • Show how the characters' stories intersect, even in small ways.
