… And I don’t play the dozens or believe in standing around with somebody in my face doing a lot of talking. I much rather just knock you down and take my chances even if I’m a little girl with skinny arms and a squeaky voice, which is how I got the name Squeaky.  From “Raymond’s Run” by T. Bambara

“ Every man needs to feel allegiance to his native country, whether he always appreciates that country or not.” From “A Man Without a Country” by Edward Hale  pg. 185 in Prentice Hall Literature book
In the objective point of view, the writer tells what happens without stating more than can be inferred from the story's action and dialogue.  The narrator never tells the reader anything about what the characters thinks or feels, and remains a detached observer of the story.
A.) Third Person Point – of – View a. Omniscient b. Objective c. Central Intelligence
The word omniscient is derived from Latin and consists of two parts:  Omni- which simply means “all” or “everywhere” and  scire  which means “to know”. This word is often used to refer to God’s ability to know everything, even that which is hidden from humans. If you use this point of view of a short story, you take that elevated position of knowing everything. Therefore, when you tell the story, you even grant the reader access to the characters’ thoughts and other things that the characters cannot discern. You are not limited by your characters’ inabilities or lack of discernment.
To be objective means to be unbiased and unaffected by personal thoughts or opinions. Thus, in this point of view of a short story, the writer presents facts and events as they happen and does not concentrate on a character’s thoughts or opinions.
The story is told from the view of one character i.e. the main character. We see the  setting  through his eyes. We see and  note  the characters in the manner that he sees them. We feel his fears and anxieties. Indeed, we have full access to his thoughts, emotions and imaginations.
B.) First Person Point – of – View a. Interior Monologue b. Dramatic Dialogue
You as the author, concentrates on the character’s thoughts… As the name suggest, the character speaks all to herself. The story occurs all in her mind.
In this point of view of a short story, the character speaks to others. This is the most common type of first person point-of-view of a short story. It usually results in a simple style.
Not very common this, but it does sure make you feel part of the action!
